Pure Food and Wine

Things finally appear to be (partially) up and running at New York City’s raw, vegan mecca Pure Food and Wine and its takeout arm One Lucky Duck.

The businesses have been shut down for four months after the staff walked out over unpaid wages.

Owner Sarma Melngailis revealed in a company newsletter on Monday that Pure Food and Wine is now open for lunch from noon to 4:00 p.m. and its iconic garden will be open starting on Sunday for brunch, just in time for some the spring weather. The restaurant is working to restore its full menu and will reintroduce dinner service soon.

“There are no words that adequately express the gratitude to those who’ve supported us all these years, and throughout our recent hiatus,” Melngailis wrote in the newsletter. “We’re honored, relieved, and excited to be back doing what we do for all of you.”

The neighboring One Luck Ducky on 17th Street also reopened and is now open daily from noon to 8:00 p.m., and the company’s Brooklyn production facility is gearing back up, which will allow for more takeaway options at One Lucky Duck and web orders. The Chelsea Market One Lucky Duck is no more.

In terms of how Melngailis dealt with the company’s financial woes, her crowdfunding campaign has raised just $13,420 of a $50,000 goal, but blog post updates on her site hinted at the fact that other fans had been reaching out to her privately to help.
