Does anybody recommend Bonobo's

In an effort to upgrade the quality of my diet I'm considering integrating Raw foods into my meals. Hence, has anybody eaten at Bonobo's. If so what was ordered?

  1. I have eaten there, it seems fine, not too exciting. They have a salad bar with pick your toppings, which are mostly organic. They make uncooked "pates" - which are blended nuts like sunflower seeds, walnuts, with herbs like dill - pretty tasty. They also have salads like broccoli salad or carrot/sesame salad - pretty tasty. I had some raw desserts, made with agave sugar and sesame seeds - all raw, not worth the price, or the calories, in my opinion. Overall, food was good, but not worth the price, and I was missing some hard core protein - I know nuts have some protein but not enough, I don't want to eat a ton of nuts due to all the fat. I much prefer Lifethyme Market, which has raw food, an organic food bar, and organic/vegan baked good, which are the best! I am lactose intolerant so I have started trying vegan desserts to satisfy my sweet tooth, and I am a convert - love love their raspberry tollbooth cookie - heavenly. Please someone out there agree with me!
