Live Food Bar is a lively restaurant that caters to health conscious foodies. It was founded in 2002 with the belief that the only way food should be processed is by the human body. Live Food Bar offers an array of delicious, homemade gluten free, sugar free and vegan dishes to revitalize and purify your body, mind and soul in a fun and eclectic atmosphere.
Run by internationally known Chef and restaurateur, Jennifer Italiano and her brother Chris Italiano, most of the offerings are based on flavors they remember from their mother’s kitchen. Part of their philosophy is to stay committed to caring for the earth through the support of sustainable organic food production and local farmers. If you visit the restroom you can have a little chuckle over the photo that reads: “Shipping is a terrible thing to do to vegetables. They probably get jet-lagged just like people.” – Elizabeth Berry
