Elizabeth’s Gone Raw began in 2009 as an expression and an experiment by our founder & owner, Elizabeth Petty. During her experience with breast cancer she was introduced to Vegan and Raw Foods as an access to better health, vitality and peace of mind. Then it was only natural to use her expertise and reputation in the food industry to share her newfound passion.
Elizabeth’s Gone Raw is a one night a week experience where our gorgeous venue is transformed into a fine dining establishment offering a Six Course Raw Foods Tasting Menu.

Chef Jonathan Seningen joined The Catering Company of Washington and Elizabeth’s Gone Raw spring of 2012. Once the Executive Chef of Hook in Georgetown, his last post was at SAX in DC. In his early career he trained and worked in the Caribbean and culinary centers in Europe. He found himself in NYC working at notable restaurants like Daniel and Artisanal. After 15 years in the restaurant business he saw the opportunity to bring his vast menu creation experience to The Catering Company of Washington where our clients get a ‘restaurant experience’ with their catered event.

Returning to us inspired to merge his classical training with this newfound expression of food preparation Chef Seningen tells a story in 6 Courses every Friday Night at Elizabeth’s Gone Raw. Each course adding another layer of flavor, texture and nuance building to a sweet and sensuous finish with each weeks raw dessert. This combination of traditional and raw food/vegan cuisine makes us a desirable destination for those events that demand a diverse offering for their guests.
