A Raw Deal

According to both Stuff at Night and the Boston Herald, one North End Restauranteur (and celebrity chef) is trying to get Boston to join the raw food movement. Grezzo, which means “raw” in Italian, is a new dining establishment scheduled to open on February 1st, and taking reservations starting January 24th. They are located in the space that formerly housed Sage (which is now in the South End).

Grezzo will be Boston’s first “raw, living food” restaurant. What is “raw, living food” you ask? According to the executive chef Alissa Cohen, “Raw, living food is uncooked fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds and sprouted grains. Nothing is heated above 112 degrees. You want to keep the enzymes and life force intact; you don’t want to destroy any of the vitamins or minerals.” Alissa Cohen is also the author of the raw food guide Living on Live Food and moderator of Raw Food Talk, an online raw food community and forum. She also promotes the Raw Food Diet and explains the beneifts of eating raw on her website.

Grezzo will be Boston’s premier 100% raw, organic, vegan restuarant, (using food that is not only organic, but locally grown). A reminder for you non-veggies out there… the term vegan means food that omits any and all animal products. A sampling of the menu? Saffron-infused Butternut Squash Soup, Wild Mushroom Ravioli with asparagus cream and Dark Chocolate Ganache Truffles. Sounds good to me!
