Expensive and worth it
Posted on 06 / 14 / 2013
There is another One Lucky Duck outpost in addition to this one - it's in Chelsea Market, on 9th Avenue, between 15th and 16th. One Lucky Duck is the take out arm of the Pure Food and Wine restaurant. The stuff is great, but it's expensive. However, high quality raw food costs a lot of money - there aren't any fillers (grains, starches, crap) and the food needs to be ultimately fresh or it's awful. My top picks are the Thai Lettuce Wraps (which are wrapped in collards, not lettuce) and the tiramisu. The tiramisu is UNBELIEVABLE. It's tiny and expensive, but it is so rich and decadent, pretty much the best dessert I've ever had. Their shelf products (such as Rawtella and bags of nuts and coconut butter) are marked up to an almost ridiculous amount.
Delicious - taste can't be beat, High quality, Great filtered water
Expensive, Can be full of attitude, sometimes
