New Veg Café in Charlotte, NC

Luna’s Living Kitchen opens in Charlotte, NC.

Luna’s Living Kitchen, a new raw, organic, vegan restaurant opened in Charlotte, NC, Monday, July 19. “Here in the South, it’s hard to find anything when you’re vegan, so we wanted to be the ones to start it,” co-owner Randy Powell says. He and wife Juliana Luna opened the café in the space where they previously had a restaurant. Except this time everything they make is completely vegan, and almost all menu items are raw. They understand the importance of knowing where your food comes from, so much of the produce is local. Additionally, the restaurant plans on hosting a series of nutritional talks, titled “Seeking the Truth About …,” in which they will explore different food-related topics, beginning August 17.
