Turning Natural Coming to H Street NE

Earlier this year, I visited Turning Natural, a vegan friendly juice bar on Martin Luther King Jr Ave SE. I remember thinking how great the staff was and how good the food (well, juice) was and that I wanted to visit again. Luckily, I won't have to go far next time.
