    Good place to go on an expense account

    The atmosphere and decor were just great. The service was friendly and informative but very slow. The food was above average: the spicy lettuce wraps and lasagna were great; the samosas, red beet ravioli, tacos were alright; the coconut noodles and hummus spread definitely not worthwhile; the hazelnut terrine was great for dessert. Overall, not worth spending $50 a person for food that is just above average. The fact that it is all vegetarian and fresh ingredients is a nice bonus. Its a good place to try out on an expense account.

    This is the finest vegan live foods restaurant in NYC. Great service and incredibly flavorful cuisine.

    The Best Raw Food Restaurant in New York

    I have become a live food consumer over the past two years and have studied it in light of nutritional value and alternative medicine. As a result I have eaten at every live food restaurant in the City! I select Pure Food & Wine the Best in NYC because of the complete package one experiences. The atmosphere, the service, the wine all compliments the star of the show ... the Food! I highly recommend it!

    Great food, wonderful environment

    Excellent food, friendly and professional staff, elegantly understated decor. It is not inexpensive, because raw vegan food is simply more expensive to prepare than conventional food. It contains no 'fillers' such as flour, milk and eggs. Whole, unprocessed foods, particularly the organic variety, are more expensive. When you order a slice of chocolate torte, you are getting a concentrated and (sinfully delicious) slice of cacao, agave natural sweetener (try pricing that stuff in your local health food store), and whatever other unprocessed whole foods they might put into it. The accompanying vanilla 'cream' is made not with cow's milk but with blended cashews (not an inexpensive nut), and the mint ice cream (also part of this dessert) is made with a base of blended young coconut. Note that as is typical of raw vegan meals, the food will fill you without that familiar 'stuffed' or 'bloated' feeling associated with a meal of steak and potatoes. If that's what you're after, you'll be disappointed here. But if you want a delicious, healthy, satisfying meal, you'll be delighted.

    Not what you'd expect

    Love this place! Imagine having a creativley unique and very flavorful meal and leave feeling so good about yourself that it is all good for you... even dessert! Servers are so nice and knowledgeable. Atmosphere is sexy too. If you think you're going to go to a raw food place and will end up with a couple of lettuce leaves, you're way off. Highly recommend the red beet ravioli (pasta part is actually beet) and what ever they make that "cheese" with is phenomenonal. Delicious desserts and drinks too. Great date place. Highly recommend, no place like it!

    Fab food

    Loved everything about it. Food, ambiance and owner (who was charming and generous with his time). The lasagne was electric on the palate and the puddings didn't betray their vegan heritage. Will return frequently and am looking forward to the book.

    NYC culinary experience!

    I travel to NYC every other week, so I am always on the lookout for that "experience" that will make that much travel memorable. I found it at Pure Food and Wine--what a treasure! We "experienced" the delights, the flavor combinations for 3-plus hours! The attention was impeccable, the atmosphere I barely remember as my/our attention was usually directed at the dishes we were sharing. I am back in town next week--and will be taking a new bunch with me then! Can't wait! ... and I am a meat eater!
