Vegan Dinner at Rockin' Raw

Rockin' Raw is a cozy, raw, organic, vegan, gluten free restaurant in Greenwich Village. It offers a broad and tasty selection of creative Creole – Peruvian style dishes that are beautifully served. (Website:

I dined here with some friends who enjoyed the Mushroom Cabiche (Peruvian style marinated mushrooms), the Jalapeno Poppers (spicy cheesy jalapenos stuffed with sunflower cheddar "cheese"), and the Fully Loaded Nachos (seasoned flax chips fully loaded with seed meet, sour cream (vegan), nacho cheese (vegan) and guacamole). I ate some absolutely scrumptious live pasta, Tallarines a la Hauncaina, which was served with mouthwatering creamy aji/nut cheese sauce, Peruvian corn, mushrooms and peppers.

Rockin' Raw also offers a great selection of delicious shakes, smoothies, and desserts. The service is friendly and caring.

The advantage of dinning at Rockin' Raw is the amalgam of delicious, healthy food with affordable prices, so you never regret dining there.

The widely-followed Living Maxwell site says of Rockin' Raw that "it totally rocks." Moreover, "this Peruvian-Creole raw vegan restaurant is a true gem" with "fantastic raw food" and an "amazingly calm atmosphere". (Click here for the complete glowing review.)

For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. It will be easy to find us: just ask the waitstaff where the "meetup" is. (Our big group will be easy to spot.) Everyone pays for their own meal. Easy!

    My friend can't come, but if I change the RSVP it will bump me off the list. Does someone on the wait list want to be my +1?

      David - Thanks. I was planning on coming after work since it's on my way, but since it is still contingent, I am heading home now and will take myself off the waitlist. Hopefully, next time.

    I love this place, but I thought they are only open Thursday-Sunday. Are they open Wednesday just for us???

    July 19, 2013

    • David G.

      Rockin' Raw is open Wednesday through Sunday for everyone. But you are right, they _used to be_ open only Thursday to Sunday, but now it is Wednesday to Sunday.
