      The textures and flavors are familiar at Matthew Kenney's Santa Monica
      restaurant, but is it enough to convince a hard-core carnivore to switch
      sides? Probably not, but it might make him reconsider.

      If you are the kind of diner who gets hung up on first impressions,
      M.A.K.E., Matthew Kenney's raw-vegan restaurant in Santa Monica Place, may
      not be for you. It is not just on the dining deck but actually in the
      mall's food court, so to get to it you have to pass by any number of gadget
      shops and cheese counters. Its open-walled design makes it difficult to
      figure out where the food court ends and the dining room begins.

      If you are new to the nut pastes, purées and dehydrated flatbreads of the
      raw-food thing, you will probably get distracted by the menu board of the
      restaurant right across the way, whose promises of buttermilk fried
      chicken, blue cheese burgers and fried dill pickles can look pretty good
      when you are considering a plate of substances that could probably be used
      as spackle in a pinch. If you have brought a child with you, there will be
      wails of anguish when he discovers that the "taco" you promised him is in
      fact nothing at all like a taco, and he may compare the za'tar flatbreads
      that come with the hummus to the crackers you buy to feed the baby goats at
      the zoo.*
