I had the honor to visit Pure Food and Wine in NYC. From the moment we walked in the door I could tell it was going to be a special night. The atmosphere is fresh and natural and the service was impeccable, there was never an empty glass or dull moment. The food definitively lived up to the hype! I highly recommend visiting if you are ever in NYC even if you do not usually enjoy raw food.
Behold the tasting menu:
strawberry, balsamic pear jam
salad of chicories with bourbon cask sour cherries, salsify bacon, lapsang smoked walnuts, buttermilk dressing
cucumber avocado soup with spinach, red pepper flakes
spicy jicama tacos, smoked guacamole,topped with hearts of palm and pickled onions
lemon alfredo noodles with marinated portabello mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, wild rapini, black garlic basil reduction
pumpkin cheesecake, brown ale ice cream, pecan brittle, brown ale caramel
The dessert blew me away! I almost just wish I could have had a dessert tasting. It took all my self control not to lick the plate. I left a happy camper and so very full of good food. The next time I am in NYC I will be returning.
