Do you like it raw? Your food, that is. If you do, then you’ll love M.A.K.E, a Santa Monica restaurant dedicated to serving healthy, organic cuisine. Using peak-season produce and local fare, raw food expert and author Matthew Kenney is on a mission to bring the benefits of plant-based, raw meals to Southern California. At M.A.K.E, nothing is heated above 105 degrees in order to preserve the food’s most essential nutrients. But just because nothing’s really “cooked,” and none of your favorite four-legged or winged friends are on the menu, doesn’t mean M.A.K.E’s approach to cuisine shouldn’t be taken seriously. Kenney’s ideology towards nutritious meals is as gourmet as it is innovative.
