I was pretty upset when Green Paradise closed a few years back. The tiny tropical-themed raw foods restaurant was one of my favorites. Well, I was thrilled to hear today (via SuperVegan reader eggbeaterzluvssoy) that the Green Paradise folks have opened a new restaurant, not too far from where the old one was. Rawstar is located at 687 Washington Avenue near Prospect Place, in Prospect Heights Brooklyn.
Chef Mawule Jobe-Simon’s food food is just as magic as I remembered it being: genuinely exquisite (not a word I toss around lightly), delicate but filling, and absolutely delicious. I tend to eat really fast, but Mawule’s food makes me slow down; each bite is like a revelation. I was lucky enough to catch a sampler plate during their preview today. The restaurant opens for business proper on Tuesday, June 3. Go check them out, and don’t forget to leave review for your fellow readers!
