Respond to Review of CLOSED: Pure Food and Wine
Review: While in NYC, we made 5:30 PM reservations at Pure Food & Wine. Our dinner was the most delicious, 5-star dining experience we've had in over 15 years of being vegan -- and we'd never really been into raw foods. We opted for the 5-course chef's tasting menu, and it was well worth the price of $69 per person (for a special occasion). It was a great way to try all of the most popular things on the menu. We were brought out two different dishes at each course, which we shared with one other. Everything was outstanding: the quality of the food; the creative and complimentary parings of flavors and temperatures; the colors, presentation, and platings; and the pace of service. We loved each offering from the amuse-bouche (a bonus and not counted as a course) to the dessert. We also had delicious organic wine and beer with our meal. Also, we did not leave feeling over-stuffed. The portion sizes are just right so that you can fully enjoy each course, right through the dessert. We can't recommend Pure Food & Wine highly enough. The highly-skilled kitchen clearly operates as a well-oiled machine, the waitstaff were on-point, and the inside of the restaurant was beautiful. We can't wait to go back for our next special occasion in NYC.
