Pure Food & Wine was New York’s first upscale outpost serving the popular raw-food diet trend—organic produce prepared in blenders and dehydrators but not heated above 118 degrees—from chef Sarma Melngailis. The minimalist, 75-seat restaurant has low lighting and orange walls and attracts the curious and the health-conscious. A garden seats 100, and a private dining room seats 20.
