Cousin's Incredible Vitality

The Very Best In Gourmet Raw Vegan Cuisine!!!

Namaste! As a vegan of almost 2 years, I instantly decided to become RAW vegan after tasting the delicious raw vegan cuisine at Cousin's Incredible Vitality in Chicago. Being a suburban girl at heart, I was happy that Cousin's I.V. was so easy to get to since it's just past I-90 heading east on Irving Park Rd. toward Lakeview. If you have never experienced a raw vegan meal, this is the perfect restaurant to visit! If you enjoy a casual yet elegant dining environment, this is the place for you! And let me tell you, the food really is INCREDIBLE! The variety of the menu is absolutely spectacular and the fresh living food choices are outstanding! (Even the water is healthy here because it alkaline and ionized.) Cousin's I.V. is open 7 days a week (11am-10pm) and the $7.95 all-you-can-eat lunch buffet (11am-2:30pm) is delicious and really is an excellent price for the variety and amount. I love the Mediterranean Pasta which has zucchini and sweet potato noodles with a delightful marinara sauce. There is also an organic juice bar where you can order yummy smoothies such as the Cleansing Cocktail which has fresh ginger, apple, celery, beet, orange and cayenne or specialty drinks like the amazing Coco-Latte which has longevity tea, maca, cacao powder, agave, and cinnamon. Cousin's I.V. also offers incredible teas and healing elixirs which promote wellness. Chef Mehmet told me that his goal is to "nourish at a cellular level where nutrients, flavors and the true benefits and spirit of the food resonate and assimilate," and he always says that the key ingredients in his food are "LOVE & GRATITUDE!" After my raw vegan dining experience at Cousin's Incredible Vitality, I felt SO good and I know that you will feel so incredibly amazing too! Peace & Wellness!

My lady and I walked into the Girl & the Goat at 7ish on a Friday night with no reservation and were eating within 45 minutes, sure we were at the bar but it wasn't long after that that the hostess called our name for a table. We decided to stay at the bar and let a friend I'd bumped into take the table but, like I said, 7 on a Friday night and less than an hour wait is not something that can be complained about. The only thing I didn't love about this place was the space itself. I felt like the decor was a bit disjointed, exposed brick, charred wooden planks, reclaimed wrought iron fire place dealies gives most of the restaurant a rustic feel that much of the menu shares but the bar area did not. That being said, this place is amazing. I'm a big fan of the smaller shareable plates style of eating so that was a winner for me. My date and I started with a loaf of fresh baked bread with a Wisconsin beer cheddar and a plate of oysters that were light and delicious. From there we ordered a few plates to share; pan fried shisheto peppers, sauteed skate, wood roasted pig face, and a goat belly served with lobster and crab meat that simply melted in your mouth. Everything was perfect from the cocktails to the food to the service. Get here soon.

Great experience!

I had a great experience here! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I've been a vegetarian for 10 years but I'd never had raw food before today - it was excellent! It makes me sad to see the negative reviews, but I am going to chalk it up to their warped expectations of a raw food establishment. The food was awesome. It was very Mediterranean inspired, at least at the salad bar, which is what I tried. The second super nice lady that helped me gave me a take out tray that I filled with little samples of every dish (AND a free cup of soup to try!). Wow. When I got home and tried everything, I was thinking about trying their month long carry out program and I still am. I didn't get sick, and in fact, I feel pretty satisfied! Concerning the service, again, I didn't dine in, but this place has a real European feel to it, and if you've been to Europe, your cooks and servers aren't going to jump when you snap your fingers. Think about it, they're taking the time to serve you the purest of food, so relax and enjoy yourself. I will gladly exercise my patience to be the recipient of a great meal. I love this place! In a city that prides itself on pizza that feels like a ton of bricks and other various processed meats, it is about time!!!
