Based out of Charlotte, N.C., Living Kitchen is a plant-based, raw, 100 percent organic restaurant with their aim to get the most nutrients and antioxidants out of their dishes without using heat on a majority of their food. They feature a broad range of vegan and vegetarian dishes, as well as various fresh cold pressed juices. The restaurant sources microgreens from Sweet Peas Urban Garden in Raleigh.
Josh Michael, general manager of the new restaurant, said he is excited for Living Kitchen to be in Chapel Hill.
“It’s a natural fit for Chapel Hill, really. There are a lot of educated people that live in Chapel Hill that understand the importance of being healthy,” said Michael while discussing the choice of the location.
