You don't have to be a vegan to enjoy what's on the menu. The offerings can satisfy all but the most rapacious carnivore. If the weather's nice, or even near nice, ask to sit out back in the patio. You'll never know you're just steps away from the urban symphony that is Union Square. It's green and quiet and comfortable.... More

If you enjoy vegan raw food then you cannot miss this place. They have a nice outdoor garden you can sit in during the warmer months. We had the taco salad and fresh lemonade. Both very good. Note though that this is a restaurant for people who really enjoy raw diets.

Very creative menu and tasty food. Unfortunately they ran out of the tasting menu item right when we arrived at 9 pm on Saturday night. There were also regular menu items that were not available. The resaurant was nice but I don't think that I will go out of my way to visit again. I am not a vegan or... More

Let's start out by saying that this was my mom's birthday and she recently switched to being raw and vegan food so I went through hell trying to find a nice place where they can accommodate. Pure Food and Wine did not disappoint and after my experience at the restaurant I have been buying books and making raw food myself.... More

When a friend of my wife camevto town and wanted to eat a truly special meal, it only took my wife a second to choose Pure Food and Wine. We don't eat there often because of the high prices, but eating there is an extra special treat we look forward to. For me it is also extra special because, as... More

Granted I stayed 5 minutes away from this beautiful restaurant set down a set of stairs in the east village. But enjoying the sunshine of the garden or the fairy lights at night was perfect to share among friends. I ate here often, sometimes lunch and dinner in one day. This vegan food is surely made with love, there is... More

We joined friends here last night on their recommendation. We had a table in the garden, which is wonderful. If you do come here - and the weather is good - make sure to sit outside. Overall, I was disappointed in the food (I readily admit that raw vegan cuisine would have been at the bottom of my list if... More

I am neither a vegan nor a vegetarian and I thought this restaurant was absolutely terrific. The service was very attentive and warm. The outside garden, a little NYC oasis. And the food...beautiful, inventive, crazy filling, and really delicious. Nice place!

This is an outstanding restaurant if you want filling, healthy loving food. Our favorite summer afternoons are at Pure's beautiful garden. The juices are always fresh and delicious. Despite the outrageous prices, this is a lovely place to spend a meal.
