Inwave Restaurant and Juice Bar Our Story

Our Story

As a family practice physician, Kamlesh Dave saw for himself a surge in heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, cancer and more.  He saw patients who were overweight, who couldn’t sleep, or who had no energy.  And the more he talked with them, the more he saw that a common thread was diet.

So he dug into the research.  He spent hours poring over studies that compared the health benefits of a plant-based diet — or even of increasing ones intake of plant-based foods.  And the more he studied the research, the more convinced he became that a plant-based diet could be a powerful tool in helping his patients and others avoid chronic illness and lead longer, healthier, happier lives.

When he surveyed Louisville’s growing restaurant scene, he found that there were none who offered a completely healthy, plant-based menu.  And he knew why.  Most people believe that plant-based dining means settling for bland, flavorless, unsatisfying meals — that it takes the fun out of food.

So he asked the big question: what if there was a restaurant with a plant-based, healthy menu? A place that put flavor and fun into healthy dining.  And then he set about creating the answer: Inwave Restaurant and Juice Bar.

He continued his research, this time of ingredients and recipes.  He studied international cuisine — and enlisted the guidance of the renowned culinary staff at Sullivan University’s National Center for Hospitality Studies.  Then he and his chef began to craft their menu, pushing themselves to explore new ways to make everything they served delicious.  And because juice, which is growing in global popularity, offers many health benefits and is also a tasty break from other drink choices, they incorporated a juice bar as well.

Then he turned his attention to the restaurant itself.  His goal was to make it a reflection of the menu: a light, colorful, relaxing place to enjoy the company of family, friends and co-workers — or to spend a little “me time,” catching up on work or just unwinding.

The result of all those months of research, planning and hard work: Inwave Restaurant and Juice Bar.  Whether you’re a foodie or a fitness buff — or anything in between — Inwave offers you a delicious choice of flavors you’ll love and feel great about.  So for fantastic fare with zero guilt, catch the wave…and taste the change!
