Living in NYC and not know about Pure Food and Wine is like going to Paris and not know about La Durée Macaroons. Sacrilege... in the world of Raw Food, or as I like to call it better, Living & Bursting Food. As the first upscale raw vegan restaurant in the Big Apple, PF&W made a name for itself among the health nuts, and perhaps more surprisingly among the foodies as well. The menu offers a one of a kind plant-based selection of dishes made with the bestest and freshest ingredients and a real sense of creativity and passion for good food. Need I say that their desserts are absolutely mind-blowing or do the pictures speak for themselves? Yes, it's on the higher-end, so find yourself a good reason that calls for celebration and go indulge on pure food and wine (or ginger shots), I promise you, you won't regret it!
