New DC Veg, Raw Restaurant

Elizabeth’s Gone Raw opens its doors in DC.

A new vegan, raw-food establishment has come to Washington DC. Elizabeth Petty opened Elizabeth’s Gone Raw, an “occasional” restaurant, currently open only a few times a month, and serves gourmet, multi-course, raw, vegan meals. Petty was originally a non-vegan caterer, but when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in April 2009, she became attracted to the raw, vegan food movement. The new lifestyle inspired her to change her business, and to show customers the range, variety, and potential of raw, vegan foods. In July 2010, she hosted her first multi-course meal at her catering headquarters. Petty plans to continue to open her doors to diners, and hopes to be serving meals once a week by September.
