Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Food and Wine
by DC Vegan
Review: I am not a raw foodie, but my boyfriend and I will strive to visit Pure Food and Wine when we go to New York. I recommend getting the five-course tasting menu. It begins with a little amuse bouche, plus five small courses chosen by the chef. PFW makes delicious nut "cheeses," including a firm triangle of nut cheese as part of the amuse on our most recent visit. It appears one of their signature dishes is a delicious raw lasagna. My boyfriend was thrilled with his raw "taco." This time between the entree and dessert, we got a shot glass of a grape soda with a raw ice cream as a palate cleanser that was refreshing and delicious. We were there for about two-and-a-half hours, but it was time (and money) well spent, and I cannot recommend this restaurant strongly enough. If you have plans for the evening, this isn't the place, but if you just want a nice, long, luxurious dinner, Pure Food and Wine is the place.
