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?
