The dishes delivered to your table—whether out on the leafy patio or inside the chic red-walled dining room—are minor miracles, not only because they look as gorgeous as they taste, but because they come
from a kitchen that has no stove. Everything at Pure is raw and vegan—from the Thai lettuce wraps to the lasagna, a rich stack of zucchini, pesto and creamy “cheese” made from cashews. Wines, most of them organic, are superb, as are the desserts— especially the confoundingly creamy tiramisu.

I really like Pure Food and Wine for their creative vegan cuisine. The environment is very pretty, and the staff is attentive. The only negative I have to say about this restaurant is that it closed for a short time over the winter, and reopened - and I think it seems like it closed again.
