India.Arie and Raw Food = The perfect summer night…
August 8, 2009
Yesterday at the last minute I decided that I needed food! Yep, I needed a really good raw food meal! Appetizers’, entrée, dessert – the whole shebang. It felt like a long time since I had had an amazing raw food feast. I hadn’t been in to check on Grezzo for a few weeks. I was craving my brownie sundae!
While I was working away on the computer all day, I kept thinking that I needed to go into Grezzo to have a really great raw meal. Finally I stopped procrastinating and got in the car, picked up a friend along the way and drove in.
We got to Grezzo at about 4:30pm, right before dinner service. When I walked in to the restaurant there were two women sitting at a table. I walked by, smiled and thought “wow, she looks familiar”, but didn’t want to disturb them. When I walked into the kitchen, my staff was all flipped out. India.Arie was the women sitting at the table along with her personal chef. She was performing last night in Boston at an outdoor venue on the waterfront.
We talked for a while about her being vegan and the food they had ordered. After chatting with them a while and giving them my book and DVD, I left them alone to eat.
My friend Christine and I sat at a table at the other end of the restaurant. Christine was whispering to me how awesome it would be if they decided that the food was so great, they were going to give us tickets to the concert that night. We laughed. About 2 minutes later, Stephanie, the women with her, asked if I’d like to do a trade. Another book and DVD for concert tickets that night.
We went to see India.Arie and she was amazing! It was a gorgeous night in Boston and her voice and lyrics are so moving.
The food at Grezzo last night was some of the best I’ve had. The pepperoni pizza was fantastic. Leah and Sam came up with an incredible vegetable terrain and the coconut meringue was really over the top amazing.
Ah, my tummy and soul were very full and happy. The perfect raw summer night.
