One of my favorite restaurants for dinner in NYC is a raw food one!
Pure Food and Wine on Irving Place, serves the most delicious raw food in the city! All the juices are great, the salads too.
My friends and I are going there regularly to chat and have amazing food and brainstorm on how to safe the earth too ;)
Other dishes you have to try: The lasagna (made of ripe tomatoes in different colors, and fresh pesto), The Spicy Thai Lettuce wraps (made with shredded veggies in a nice sauce), and the daily specials.
The raw ice creams are really yummy (Did I say raw? Yes indeed it is all cold and raw!)
My favorite Juice is the Hot Pink:
My favorite salad is the Spicy Sesame Salad:
My favorite dessert are the Mallomar and Lemon Bar.
By the way: “Raw” means the ingredients are not heated above 118 degrees Fahrenheit. It keeps the enzymes intact, and the rawfoodies say therefore it is better for you.
Try it if you are in Manhattan sometime. ( especially in the summer raw food is great, as it is light and refreshing.)
