A new raw vegan café is set to open in Clayton’s DeMun neighborhood sometime this spring.
The Clayton Board of Aldermen approved the opening of Seedz Café, at 6344 S. Rosebury Avenue, at the Feb. 26 meeting.
The owners, Montgomery Gralnick and Cara Schloss, originally from St. Louis, are coming from California. Gralnick said he prepared food for high-profile people who were very specific about the nutritional content of their diet. It was part of the work he did on movie sets, which he was involved in on the West Coast.
“As life would have it, it has brought us back to the area, bearing, hopefully gifts of nutrition and wellness,” Gralnick said.
He said they’ll serve juices and something new to St. Louis.
“I’ll say smoothies, but we’re going to introduce a new term, it will be infused elixirs.” They hope to put together some juice fasting and cleansing programs.
He said they’ll carry beer and wine from independent brewers and wine makers, but food and wellness is their focus. They also want to work with local growers for their produce.
Schloss manages the whole body department at Whole Foods. “We couple together our experience in wellness,” Gralnick said.
The opening comes months after vegetarian restaurant Frida's Deli opened in University City.
