This place is fantastic. As an ENTIRELY vegan restaurant (that doesn't even use honey), it is one-of-a-kind in its area. Especially when driving across NY, it's a great place to stop along the way. They do not serve lunch specials on the weekends, which can make a bill pretty expensive. [For 2 people, we spent $50 for appetizer, entrees, and dessert. When we got just entrees, it was until $30.] Plenty of free parking is available on the street. No alcohol is served or permitted in the restaurant.
The Pure City Platter is a lovely sampler, but not very big, so overpriced for what you get. But, it is a great way to try so many of the items that sound delicious. The spare ribs in particular were excellent, as were the veggie nuggets. My experience with veggie nuggets was different than listed by another user. I thought they were like a less-tough version of seitan. The Sesame Veggie Nuggets and the Mixed Diced Vegetable in Taro were great. So was the cheesecake! (though the piece was small for the price)
everything is so tasty and vegan, variety on menu, quick service
not all that healthy, kind of expensive
