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.

A little something on the house, Nut Cheese Tartlets with mushrooms, caramelized onions, and apricot sauce. These are amaaaazing! I coulda eaten a whole plate of them!


Dessert, always my favorite. I went with the Classic Sundae - vanilla and chocolate ice creams, whipped creme, chocolate sauce, caramelized almonds, and banana. This is fabulouso!

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!

    I love, love, love reading your blog and living vicariously through you when you take these wonderful trips. It reminds me of the one fabulous meal I had at Pure Food and Wine when I was traveling to NYC to go to the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. You inspire me. I'm not raw, but you help me realize that it could be possible, some day.

    I have a question...When you go to visit a town how do you go about finding the raw food restaurant? I like making raw foods but it would be nice to try new things that someone else created. How do I find the raw food restaurant in my area?<br />-Candee

    Looking at that sundae, I am soo jealous! It has not stopped snowing for days here, and I would LOVE to escape for a nice meal in NYC. In the meantime, like so many others, I'll just have to live vicariously through your blog...

    Hi Heathy! I am drooling over all of the yummy food photos. Apparently NYC IS the place to go for some yummy raw rezzies, mmm. I noticed your from Ontario...ME TOO! It's super snowy here right now...hopefully things will settle before your return so it's not a weather shocker, hehe. Seems like your having a rawsome time.<br /><br />Amanda Banana
