I'm curious about what people would like to see in a raw vegan restaurant.

My own "checklist":

Reasonable prices. This is a big problem with raw food restaurants ATM. "Reasonable" here means a satisfying meal for <$10.
Veganically grown produce, where possible.
Casual atmosphere. No yuppie self-affirmation vibes (*cough* Euphoria Loves Rawvolution *cough* Cafe Gratitude).
Loads of books available for anyone to read at any time.
A stage for bands, DJs and guest speakers.
A back area for impromptu meetings and conferences.
No honey. This one should be self explanatory.
No cooked food. Cooked vegan food is great... for a cooked vegan restaurant, and generally those already exist in the cities that have raw restaurants. It smacks of desperation to see raw joints re-inventing themselves as "fusions" of the two, when they generally can't even master the one.

So basically a coffeehouse/kick ass raw restaurant in one. ^^ That's my rant, and maybe one day I'll put my money where my mouth is...

I agree with all the above! Particularly the honey thing. It's so limiting. I don't mind paying a bit more for high quality/organic, but there are limits... Plus it's less accessible. I've always envisaged a mini-vegan library as part of my theoretical cafe...
