Pure Food and Wine

I finally got around to trying Pure Food and Wine.  This is a raw food vegan restaurant that is in my neighborhood that I have been wanting to try for quite some time.

There are many gluten free options on the menu and they are all marked with notations indicating that they are gluten free.

I decided to have their Zucchini and Tomato Lasagna which is one of their specialties.  This is made with a sun-dried tomato sauce, pistachio basil pesto and pumpkin seed macadamia ricotta.  It is not your typical lasagna as there is no cheese or pasta and it is a cold entree.

For dessert, I enjoyed their delicious Moon Pie - a chocolate brownie vanilla cream sandwich!  I also was able to bring home an Oreo cookie.

One of the nice things about Pure Food and Wine is their beautiful private back outdoor garden seating that transports you out of the busy and noisy city.  Also, all of the water in the restaurant is filtered through a Tensui water filtration system!

If you just want something quick to takeaway, try out their other restaurant, One Lucky Duck Juice Bar and Takeaway.  It sells raw vegan juices, shakes, ice creams, cookies, desserts and other takeaway items.  There are two locations - one in Gramercy Park and the other at Chelsea Market.

For more information, visit their website at!  Or visit them at:
