The Art Of Food Folds

During this week of welcoming Art Basel Miami, let us take a moment to say goodbye to The Art Of Food.

The raw food/vegan counter cafe was located in a cooperative vintage

clothing and jewelry shop across the street from Midtown Miami's

Circuit City (which has problems of its own). Excepting delicious

desserts, I didn't care for the Art Of Food's food at all. As I wrote

at the time of review,

the glorious natural flavors of fresh fruits and vegetables are

impressive enough on their own terms, and needn't be compromised into

concoctions like uncooked "lasagna" and "hamburger". That said, in a

city as bereft of not just vegan restaurants but worthy vegetarian

cuisine, it is sad to see The Art Of Food fold.

Can't any restauranteur out there do this meatless thing right?
