Work visitor on "Raw-food diet" - Need your Help! Restos? Organic salads?

We have a visitor at work who will we need to feed for the next two days. Just found out she does the raw-food diet. I can only subject her to our cafeteria salad bar for so long! Any restaurants in Boston that are in-line with the Raw Food diet? We're in the Longwood medical area so places within 15-minutes drive would be ideal, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. If nothing else, where can we get the best salad - organic vegetables prefered?!

Thanks so much!

  1. I think some local chefs have dabbled with special-event raw-food dinners, but I have not seen a single raw-food-only restaurant here yet.

    1. check your local good health food store, they should know. Great one up in the Lowell area but not sure about Boston, maybe they can point you in the right direction though - they stick together pretty good since it's a smaller demand.

      1. In Beverly there is organic garden. But that is a hike.

          And it isn't very good, except for the smoothies.

        2. mare in the north end is almost entirely organic, and if you call ahead, could probably prepare a raw vegetarian menu.

          find out how strict is your colleague. 100% organic raw is nearly impossible to achieve, especially if this person travels frequently for business. raw is much easier to find than totally organic. especially in boston at this time of year.

 could be a good resource.

          if you're thinking of going someplace that doesn't fall under the category of "raw" or "vegetarian", call ahead and any decent place will do their best to accomodate you.

          1. You could give a call to Felicia at Centre Street Cafe in JP, very close to the medical area. They are very commited to organic food, and although they don't have any raw food menu items per se, if you timed it right she might be willing to work something up. They do both lunch and dinner.
