Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Food and Wine
Review: We came to NY JUST to go here and were not disappointed in the least. We had all sorts of juices and sakis, we had the worlds best stuffed mushrooms (cooked or otherwise...I don't even like mushrooms and I couldn't get enough), we had an amazing beet ravioli dish, and we had an incredible apple desert and a trifecta of perfect dark chocolate encased ice cream treats. A dipped ice cream cone, an ice cream sandwich, and a creamcicle!! The proprietor, Sarma, who wrote my favorite cook book (again, raw or otherwise) took a picture with us and chatted with us for a while. A very pretty, sweet and down to earth lady. PLUS we sat right next to Alicia Keys, but we didn't even know it!!! The wonderful waitress, Adrian I believe, was like "Oh you guys can tell your friends you met Sarma and sat next to Alicia Keys!" We were like, what?! lol AMAZING experience. INCREDIBLE food. If you live in NY and don't go eat here every day, you're crazy. Period.
