Adventures in NYC – Part 1
As you already know from my previous post, I've had the great fortune of taking another trip to New York City! I had so much fun there in the Fall that I just had to come again. The winter blues can get the best of me in the north, so this refreshing time away has been just what I needed. Dining at some of the greatest raw restaurants is in order here. My first dinner was at Pure Food & Wine with my friend Philip - this is probably the best raw resto on the planet.
The cocktail special was in order. Strawberry Raspberry Aloe- Tini with Rose Petals. Yes it tasted as great as it looks!
So happy to be here! Cheers!
I ordered the Nori Rolls - filled with spinach, kim chi, nut cheese, and ginger.
I also chose the Arugula/Frisee Salad with pear, some kind of yummy dressing, and shaved nut cheese on the top.
Philip is finishing a 60 day juice/smoothie fast, so he enjoyed this delicious smoothie.
Great dinner at Pure
I enjoyed lunch at One Lucky Duck a few days later with my good friend Deana. We were sure to split a half pint of Vanilla Mint Chip Ice Cream for dessert... didn't even think to snap a pic before we eagerly dove in.
She enjoyed the Thai Lettuce Wraps
I enjoyed a huge Simple Green Salad, with all kinds of fresh herbs like mint, cilantro, and parsley.
That's just the start... much more coming soon... another dinner at Pure, a trip to Quintessence, and a dessert feast from One Lucky Duck!
