Blog: Cru Is Closed But Raw Veganism Is Alive And Well

Details on Cru's closure and a list of remaining raw vegan dining options in Silver Lake and Echo Park.

recently confirmed that Silver Lake’s raw vegan spot Cru has closed permanently. I have many questions for Cru, such as, where will Silver Lake’s raw foodists go for dehydrated flax and rubbed garlicky kale?

I will try to get to the bottom of that for you. In the meantime, here are your remaining raw vegan food options in Silver Lake and Echo Park:

Flore Vegan - 3818 West Sunset Blvd Silver Lake, CA 90026

Cold Carrot Ginger Soup $3.95 (cup) or $4.95 (bowl)
Grapefruit Avocado and Fennel Salad $10.95
Mega Green Salad $10.95
Kale and Apple Salad $10.95
Jicama Tacos $9.95
Flore also has a nice selection raw smoothies and shakes.

View the Flore Vegan Menu.

Sage Organic Bistro - 1700 West Sunset Blvd Echo Park, CA 90026

Raw Tacos $10.95
Raw Bowl $11.95
Raw Kale, Avocado & Apple Salad $9.95

Juicers can fulfill their raw beet and pureed kale needs at Silver Lake Juice & Tea or Hedgehog in Echo Park – which, by the way, makes the least expensive juices I’ve found (talking under $5).

If you know of any other great raw dishes in the neighborhood, post them in the comments below.
