Pure Food and Wine opens for brunch

Brunch without eggs seems sacrilegious. But Pure Food and Wine is giving this weekend meal a raw, vegan makeover.

mimosasSunday brunch is a sacred ritual in the lives of New Yorkers—huevos rancheros, stuffed french toast, and bottomless Bloody Marys go down easy with a side of the previous week’s gossip.

Last weekend, Pure Food and Wine became the newest restaurant to enter the world of its-never-too-late-for-eggs. Except, of course, there won’t be any eggs.

Like the rest of its menu, Pure’s brunch is 100% raw and vegan. All of their dishes are plant based, and they don’t use any processed ingredients. “It was always in the works, but we weren’t quite ready to roll it out,”says Tiffani Barton, Pure’s Public Relations and Events Manager. “We were getting requests and questions; people seemed into having a raw, vegan brunch in a nice  setting.”

Pure's beautiful outdoor space will be a perfect place to brunch with friends, come Spring.

Menu items include Flaxseed Crepes with Hazelnut Cacao Spread and a Porcini Mushroom and Spinach Quiche (we can’t wait to find out what this is made of). Brunch will be served on Saturdays and Sundays from 12-4, and if nothing strikes your fancy, the regular lunch menu will still be offered as well.

It may sound like the perfect guilt-free alternative to your usual chocolate chip pancakes, but not so fast. There is one brunch staple Pure Food and Wine decided not to change—bottomless mimosas will be available for $20.

Pure Food and Wine, 54 Irving Place between 17th and 18th St., New York, NY. Brunch served Saturday and Sunday from 12-4PM. Reservations recommended, but not required.
