Rawlicious to open new location in…Soho?
Rawlicious’ clever culinary masquerade is heading south to New York later this month. Thanks to an enthusiastic vegan father-son duo visiting from New York, co-owners of Rawlicious Chelsea Clark and Angus Crawford were convinced to set up a branch in NYC’s Soho, which according to Grub Street will be a 60-seat café open from 11 to 11 daily. The last time a Toronto restaurant set foot in the Big Apple, of course, the results were not so positive. In an interview with the Sun after his failed attempt at expansion there, Susur Lee warned: “New York is always difficult….They are more traditional than we think.” And while Rawlicious’ lack of gluten, dairy and sugar might not appeal to all tastes, we figure that in such a trendy, body-conscious neighbourhood, the health factor will probably go over well.
