In the Raw
Roxanne's is a restaurant where they take sustainable eating to whole new level --
WHY SWITCH TO A LIVING FOODS DIET
Living foods are the key to our health and longevity. They allow our bodies to perform as they were meant to . . .
The dishes at Roxanne's are pure, elegant and full of life. Our ingredients are all natural and organic. Our produce, fresh fruits, exotic herbs and edible flowers are from our own 3-acre garden, or from other small, local sustainable farmers and producers . . .
THE ECOLOGICAL DESIGN OF ROXANNE'S RESTAURANT
Just as our organic cuisine supports a more sustainable planet, our restaurant's construction and interior design were driven by this principle. All of the wood used in the construction of the restaurant is either recycled, or certified sustainably harvested by the Forest Stewardship council, the most stringent certification organization. The front trellis is made from salvaged windfall Sonoma County Cypress. The racks in the wine room are being built from recycled cedar . . .
Anyone want to go out to eat? :)

A review of it sounds really really good, if expensive.
Without meat, grains or milk products, and nothing heated above a warm 118 degrees, Chef Roxanne Klein manages to deliver a beautiful repertoire of satisfying dishes... The soft, meaty flesh of a young coconut is shredded to make noodles for a satisfying Pad Thai dish. Parsnips and pine nuts are ground and minced to mimic couscous in a hearty, saffron-scented tajine dish loaded with vegetables.
Is Larkspur near Petaluma or SF? We're going to be visiting in November for the AAA conference...

Ahhh... drool.... The menu looks fabulous and the photo tour is beautiful. It's a wee bit pricey, but could be very nice for a special occasion. Nice. Mmm...
I'm glad that hummus fits the description. But I would miss bread.
