GRAND OPENING!!!!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We have had a huge response! We have only 9:30 seatings still available and we are almost out of seats now. This is a BY RESERVATION ONLY event! Please respond and let us know you will be coming and how many will be in your party if you haven't already done so. Thanks!

Please call the restaurant at [masked] to confirm your reservation from this point forward. It's official! We will be holding our Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday August 2, that's this coming Saturday! Don't miss it! This is a free event and Leafy Greens Cafe will be providing the food! If you want to bring a bottle of wine or beer, this is a BYOB event.

We are encouraging everyone to bring guests - especially people who don't know what raw food is - it will be the perfect opportunity to let your friends and family taste what raw food is about and hopefully they will love it as much as we all do!

Odon Sotieras will be performing again and maybe we can even convince Ani to do her fire routine too! We will be having a totally open house open to the public as well as meetup members.

Our goal is to do one of these events each quarter so that we can get non-raw people to experience raw food and hopefully they will join the bandwagon to this amazing way to eat and way to live. Live well. Laugh hard. Eat Raw!

    My guests and myself were totally impressed with the ambience, the food and the generosity of out hosts. I have been and will be recommending Leafy Greens to everyone. I believe that the restaurant will be absolutely successful, as Denise and Doug have obviously put their hearts and souls into this new project that will contribute greatly to the well being of the raw community and the education of the community at large. They have all my love and support. Love and Light, Sandra

    Denise is an angel living her purpose graciously. The food was divine. I would like to eat this way everyday. I am in the process (however slow) of going more to raw.

    The grand opening was absolutely fabulous. The food was delicious. The presentation of the food was beautiful. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The noise factor a little loud- but that happens - it was an exciting time.

    This meetup exceeded all of my expectations. I brought 4 friends that are not familiar with the raw food lifestyle and they were all pleasantly surprised. They thought that the food and the atmosphere was wonderful. We were all impressed with the courteous staff, the delicious food, and the music which made the experience even more intimate. Thank you for a great evening. My family and I will be regulars at the Leafy Greens Cafe.

    It was an amazing event. The food was incredibly delicious and service was top-notch, and the music was just beautiful. I'm hoping that Denise will open a raw foods restaurant in Sarasota next!

    Denise and staff were most gracious and accomodating. The food was absolutely delicious. The wait staff worked hard to please and were learning how to serve. Noise seems to be a factor and otherwise it was absolutely perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves. My non raw food friends were very surprised at how much they enjoyed the food. Please tell us the names of what we ate as an entree so that we can order it when we are at the restaurant. Thank you so much Denise and Doug for a wonderful experience. Much success on this fine restaurant.
