NYC: Pure Food and Wine

NYC: Pure Food and Wine. Pure Food and Wine restaurant is an offshoot of One Lucky Duck is owned by Sarma Melngailis; it is a raw “haute cuisine” vegan restaurant, located near Union Square and its giant farmer’s market. The menu is entirely plant based and does not use any processed ingredients. Nothing is heated above approximately 118 degrees in order to preserve vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It is simply delicious; I never thought raw food could be so tasty. And it also has a great wine, shakes and juice list.


Pure Food and Wine.  Prepared by chef Nikki King Bennett, the Zucchini and Greenhouse Tomato Lasagne; sun-dried tomato sauce, pistachio basil pesto, pumpkin seed macadamia ricotta, not only look attractive, they are also delicious.


Pure Food and Wine.  The pastry chef Melissa Christy’s Lemon Bar; almond coconut crust and tart lemon custard, is to die for.
