Jill's did not deliver.
The food here is all organic and mostly raw. Chef Jill Pettijohn specializes in "nutritional cleansing." As of July 2007, they do not deliver, but are planning to begin delivery service in the future.

- Jill's is good. More affordable then Pure but of course still priced like raw gourmet food. I liked the main dishes okay, but the desserts were pretty awesome, coming from someone who's not raw. Our server was sweet and attentive when we went.

- Once you can get over the prices, Jill's makes eating vegetables fun again. I didn't see the apple and beets salad mentioned above, so maybe they got the hint. A couple of the chefs used to work at Pure Food & Wine, so the menu is definitely worth checking out. I recommend the pizza, hijiki salad, the sun-dried tomato greens & Brussels sprouts dish,, and the desserts. Definitely the desserts.

- I checked Jill's out today for lunch. The place was empty, but the person at the counter was really helpful and pleasant. There’s an upscale vibe to the décor, but it still feels more like a takeout place.
The prices were about to scare me out the door, but there is a lunch special. For $9.50 you get a green juice, a small salad, half sandwich and a chocolate slice dessert. The food is fantastic. Sandwich was a smallish slice of hearty bread with hummus and about half an avocado with some tomato/cuke/pepper slices and some oil. Salad was tasty with a fresh lemony dressing. Chocolate slice was incredible. Juice was fully satisfying. I got a soup at the Perelandra juice bar on the way back in case Jill's was a bust, but I'm full.
Raw food is a tough sell in any neighborhood. $9 salads and $14 mains make it even tougher to get anyone to try it out. The lunch special is pretty good value for such clean and tasty food. I'm going back.

- I dropped in for take-out lunch the other day... wow! And not in a good way. The server was apathetic, uninformed, and verging on surly, and the "apple & beet salad" that I ordered was not only shockingly skimpy, it also didn't contain a single apple slice. The half-portion cost $5.50 and consisted in its entirety of approximately 10 leaves of arugula and a few beet slivers, with some kind of cider vinegar-ish dressing. And yeah--despite what the name of the dish might imply--no freaking apple slices! No other add-ins of any sort either, for that matter.
I got back to my office and opened my bag to find the sorry site of a small to-go box with a wimpy pile of leaves on one side, and a few little beet slices on the other side. No fork. No napkin. I can't remember exactly what else the menu said would be in the salad, but I know it wasn't supposed to be just arugula and beets. I mean to reiterate just one last time, an "apple & beet salad" should at the very least have apples in addition to beets. It was definitely tasty, for the 4 seconds it took me to finish the teensy portion, cause beets are tasty and arugula is tasty. But man, it was just hands down the lamest presentation and worst value ever. The lack of effort was simply astounding. The plus is that I have brought home-made lunch in to work every day since then, so that even the combined factors of lunchtime hunger and lack of other vegan options in the neighborhood wouldn't induce me to return to Jill's.
