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?

Thanks!

    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!
