Don't expect to be full – I think I have eaten at every raw restaurant in L.A. Cru is one of the most charming and tasty of them, but I found the prices and portions to be uneven. The plates are visually stunning in the fashion of a fancy French restaurant and the flavors are subtle, but full. My main complaint is that as a vegetarian, I need to eat just a little more to feel satisfied. It works to put a tiny piece of meat on a plate surrounded by some dapple of sauce, but when it's vegetables, one feels starved in about 10 minutes with those portions. I spent $47.00 (for two tip included) and had to go home and eat later. I'm not a pig, but these meals, as tasty as they are just don't satisfy the way that the ones at Leaf, another raw place do (for much less money
For the chocolate lovers!!! – I was in Silver Lake in business and the wheather got bad, so I went into Cru for a coffee. Have you ever had healthy coffee? It tastes just as good or better than a great cup of regular coffee. I asked for a tasty suggestion and the chef said I should try their chocolate cake. I'm not a vegan so I hesitated, but after a brief description of how it's made and how good it is for you, I figured I might as well satisfy my craving and not feel guilty about breaking my New Year's resolution. When she brought it to the table accompanied by a delicious scoop of chocolate ice cream, it smelled and looked sooo delicious! It tasted even better! and healthy for me as well?! SoI decided to become a dessert-vegan. I can eat delicious cake and chocolate ice cream and feel great! THIS IS A MUST TRY IF YOU'RE EVER IN SILVER LAKE!!!
good raw vegan spot in silverlake – For a saturday lunch, we stopped at Flore Vegan only to realize that they are closed from 1-3. We went down the street to Cru and had a great experience. All dishes served at this establishment are raw and the two dishes we tried were delicious. The greek kafta was similar to falafel and was served with a tasty tzatzki sauce. Their miso ravioli was very satisfying, and the cashew cheese tasted a lot like ricotta. Try the ginger peach iced tea - very refreshing!
SO GOOD! – This place is the best raw restaurant. The service is super friendly and everything on the menu is delicious.
