Respond to Review of Pure Food and Wine
by Isabelle Gosselin
Review: Went to Pure Food for the first time on August 24, 13. We were expecting a lot given the price and the reputation. My husband and I had the Chef's tasting menu. Out of 6 different dishes, we liked two. Those were very good, but the rest lacked depth or harmony in flavors. The dessert we had between the two of us was one strawberry, a small piece of cheesecake (delicious), and 4 small scoops of different sorbets, some of them a bit too sour, like the (unsweetened) rhubarb. I don't know if it's because we're spoiled with the excellent raw restaurants we have in Toronto back home (Rawlicious and Live Food Bar), but this one left us disenchanted and emptied-wallet. Will not return.
