Review: My sweetheart and I were blown away by RAW! He's not even into raw foods and he loved it all. Sadly we were just in town for the day but we tried lots of things (they have wonderful samples available) and all of it was deeelicious. This food is SO MUCH better than Karyn's. I experienced Karyn's raw foods as being too heavily focused on sweeteners, nuts and fermentation (overly fermented in some cases). Raw's food is more refined in regards to balanced & complex seasonings, textures and aliveness. There's NO comparison between Raw's almond milk and Karyn's! If Raw had been closer to where my conference was I'd have eaten there all 4 days I was in IL. And one of the proprietors, Carole, was absolutely delightful---a kind-hearted, generous, authentic person. The green drink we had was ahhhhmazing, the pizza was astonishing, the tiramisu was one of the best desserts I've ever had. I can see why they've got so many regulars. And everything is so beautifully packaged & presented. The prices were very reasonable considering how much effort & brilliant execution goes into what they make (I've made lots of raw food and it's very labor intensive). The only reason I'd ever want to go back to Chicago (I'm not a city person) is to eat at RAW! Go there soon--you will NOT be disappointed! The only thing that could improve Raw is if they had a little cafe rather than a location in the market place. I see them growing into such a place---with food this exceptional and the heartfelt vibe they exude, it's a given.... BRAVO!!!
