EaterLA 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.

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.
