Rockin' Raw, Brooklyn's newest raw spot

Big ups to Charles for letting us know about the opening of this new raw spot!

Two graduates from Institute for Integrative Nutrition have joined together to open the first raw food restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The spot is called Rockin' Raw and it's located on 178 North 8th Street between Bedford and Driggs.

Here's a photo of Rockin' Raw's outside garden:

Here's a note from owners Tere Fox and Luis Salgado on Rockin' Raw's style of cuisine:

Our cuisine is Peruvian/New Orleans style. We have jambalaya, cebiche, "tuna" poboys, live pasta dishes, lucuma ice cream... This is food like your mama never made for sure. We are not heavy on nuts like some raw food restaurants tend to be. We are strong headed about fresh produce and making foods that rock all your senses.

All of our foods are from local farmers except of course Maca and Lucuma which is still organic and straight from Peru. We are also using ecofriendly paper and togo products. We are green, green, green.

Sweet! Rock'n Raw looks like a great place for fun food and good times - a nice, chill, and relaxed hang-out spot. I have a feeling we'll be doing an event there sometime soon. Stay tuned!
