We were the only people eating at Rawstar on a Sunday night in September and it was hippie and yummy. Rawstar is an all raw and all vegan restaurant located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. Here's what we had lovingly prepared for us….

Spinach pie, kale salad & tabouli:

Lasagna (only served on the weekends), broccoli salad & sprouts:

Dessert was a piece of strawberry-blueberry cheesecake:

I loved the lasagna. Loved. The spinach pie plate was good and the cheesecake was ok, a bit on the heavier side. After having the creations brought to my lips from Cafe Gratitude and Elaina Love I am a picky raw food dessert lover.

Much love & success to Rawstar.

I emailed Jessica practically moments before the show cause I didn't want to go alone cause I thought she seemed really cool on her two blogs(see above). And guess what? She was really cool, gracious and has legs that I will probably envy till I'm old! ha!

Much love to all and thank you thank you thank you for the hookups! You know who you are!

Yes, that's what I wrote, 'outfits'. I bought this for Eliot in a store in New York on the upper west side. It's called Bit'Z Kids: http://bitzkids.com/store/  and I just love their clothes. Enjoy!

Warning: names dropping ahead.

Blossom is a beautiful favorite raw and vegan restaurant on the Upper West Side. I've heard it's a favorite of Anne Hathaway. We saw Matt Dillon there.
