In the early 2000s Chef Owner Roxanne Klein was the hottest thing on the American food scene. People called her a revolutionary, comparisons to Alice Waters were made. Klein created quite the stir in the culinary world by introducing a new fine dining cuisine based on raw, organic vegetarian ingredients. Roxanne's was one of the most innovative new restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area. The restaurant's "living food" cuisine earned rave reviews from both diners and food critics. Gourmet Magazine stated, "Roxanne's is simply the most innovative restaurant of our time." Famed Bay Area critic Michael Bauer said Roxanne's offers "truly four-star dining, with a world class wine list and elegant decor." A graduate of the California Culinary Academy, her creativity with vegetarian cuisine and her broad knowledge of organic ingredients earned her respect from a variety of culinary authorities.
