LA, the healthy-conscious city that it is, offers a ton of raw food restaurants scattered from east to west. One of the more recent raw restaurant openings came last May when chef Stephen Hauptfuhr decided to take his catering/retail business brick and mortar with the introduction of Mooi. The Echo Park eatery opened with lunch and dinner service, however Quarry Girl reports that for some reason Mooi has drastically scaled back its hours of operation. Stephen writes,
"currently we have been operating under non-regular hours, meaning we are not open for regular dinner service on a daily basis as before, we are open every Friday for a set prix fixe 5-7 course menu that changes each week from stephen hauptfuhr and occasional collaborations with guest chefs?we will continue to operate on these hours through the holidays as we are doing a lot of catering..."Uh-oh, is this the calm before the storm? Is a shutter approaching? Anyway, check out that five course menu, a total steal at $20 a head especially for raw food.
