I finally made it to PURE FOOD AND WINE. I’ve been curious about it since becoming obsessed with RAW FOOD REAL WORLD. This beautiful picture was taken by my boyfriend while enjoying his handrolls with sesame encrusted avocado.
The arugula salad featured raw cheese, fresh berries, and some amazing hazelnuts. I wish I had taken a picture of the menu because my description is not doing it justice.
The coconut noodles with red curry sauce was incredible.
I had heard people drooling about the desserts numerous times so I had high expectations, but the desserts did not disappoint. This was a trio of chocolate desserts.
Admittedly, I’ve always had a FONDNESS for mint ice cream. But the mint sundae blew me away. It was amazing.
The people watching was almost as interesting as the food. While I was eating my dinner, GISELE BUNDCHEN walked by on the way to her table. I have to say that if I were the highest paid supermodel in the world, I would be there all the time. But alas…for I am not. Though it’s nice to have a place to go that will enable the fantasy for a night…
