Perhaps Richmond just wasn’t ready to “rawk”.

Rawk the Planet (240-12240 2nd Avenue), a raw vegetarian café in Steveston, has shut down after less than four months in business.

A July 8 post on the restaurant’s Facebook page states:

Rawk the Planet has closed permanently at this location. We will be opening a vegan, vegetarian, raw, catering and production company of our foods. We will cater anywhere from small private lunches and dinners to large functions.

Nessa Campbell, a raw food chef, opened Rawk the Planet in March.
