“Food is an important piece of information for the body. What you put into your body has an effect on your mind, body and soul and determines your thoughts and your actions.”
JJ Jauhar brings his fresh innovative ideas to the Los Angeles food world. Having gotten his feet wet in the New York Restaurant scene where his family owned three restaurants, he is an experienced “foodie” and restaurateur. JJ’s expertise and flair incorporate all aspects of full-service dining; the taste, the presentation, and above all, the atmosphere.
His experience in restaurants and night clubs in New York City and Washington, DC for several years, has helped him create his own version of hip, happy and healthy dining. With his international background (having spent time in India), experience and ease with people, he is tuned in to the new food trends. Today’s hottest trend is healthy, tasty, organic, eating. People are looking at natural ways of remaining healthy. JJ knew it was the perfect time to create foods that not only satisfy the palate but HEAL the body and soul as well. And Los Angeles was the perfect place for this to happen.
He strongly believes that the healthy dining experience involves the person as a “whole”. Thus Ayur Ras (The Juice of Life) was born, based on the holistic principles of Ayurveda, a 5,000-year old science of life that emphasizes the use of food to achieve balance and wellness. JJ’s innovative ideas about how food should taste and be presented is grounded in the cultural diversity of Indian food, each with its unique aromas and cooking styles, carefully blended into exotic and mouthwatering recipes exclusive to Ayur Ras. Be prepared for the difference—this is beyond what you have ever had before—it’s multidimensional.
