THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Planet Raw Restaurant Review

: Historically noted as a founding father of the Raw Food Movement, Juliano Brotman ran a quiet café within walking distance of Golden Gate Park frequented by San Francisco's dwindling hippie population. Then Brotman moved south, just six blocks from the racy beaches glamorized in countless films, and opened Juliano's Raw, catering to the beautiful body-conscious of L.A.'s Westside. The concept of the restaurant, now renamed Planet Raw, is simple: everything's raw (made from an all-natural, vegetarian product base). Brotman calls it gourmet living cuisine based on ancient culinary techniques (as in food that predates the discovery of fire). Instead of cooking technique, the emphasis is placed on the quality of ingredients. Everything served is certified organic. Dishes include green curry pasta with zucchini or kelp noodles, mushroom nut meat and potatoes, and kale salad with avocado. A menu of smoothies includes a superfoods chocolate peanut butter shake.
