I had a lovely raw food lasagne and nice glass of wine. We shared a dessert between four of us and it still came to $64 each which I thought was a crazy price really for what we had. The icecream was also not that great. I suppose I was looking for something that would be as nice as normal... More

I have been time and again to this amazing small restaurant and to me it is a must every time I visit New York. It is an oasis in otherwise the junk food desert that can be NYC. My first experience and introduction to raw food. At first I was a bit skeptical naturally as I am neither a vegetarian... More

Dinner with my colleague and her daughter. Sat outside in the courtyard. Food and service were exceptional, ambiance was great and the topper for the evening was when the fireflies began to light. Looking forward to my next visit.

8 skeptical family members being taken to a raw vegan restaurant. They all leave amazed and impressed. We all had the five course tasting menu. Wonderful. It was so fun sharing and comparing! Such an enjoyable night. Do it!

We recently had one of the best meals I have ever had in any restaurant. The raw lasagna and the raw tamales were out of this world. And don't even get me started on the desserts. I used to think that Candle 79 was the best restaurant in New York; but no longer. I have a new number one. Plus,... More

I was in NY on business and met friends at this lovely restaurant. We sat outside under a shade tree and enjoyed our vegetarian meal. I highly recommend the 5 course chef's tasting menu.

This place was rated high for outdoors sitting, and since we searched for a great vegetarian/vegan place it was an obvious choice. The dishes were extremely filling and satisfying, interesting flavors and textures of different raw foods. I must say I've had better vegan food before, but it was still very good, and the amazing 'Tavern-like' atmosphere outdoors in the... More

It was my first time in this restaurant, for my husband's 60th birthday. I was really hoping we'd picked a good one. Well, in my opinion, we couldn't have chosen better. The restaurant was intimate and cosy, and there's a terrace outside. The food was incredible, so beautifully presented and delicious. I found the size of the dishes to be... More
