I just came from The Juice Press in the East Village and I was very pleasantly surprised by the raw food I got. I got the 8 piece ravioli on a bed of kale with basil sauce for $12, the chia breakfast pudding for $7, the raw oatmeal for $6, raw acai berry banana nut mix (sort of pudding-y) for $8 and cheese cake (raw and vegan, like everything else I’m mentioning here) for $10. I tried everything, but the only thing I finished so far was the ravioli, but it is all completely delicious. And it’s all organic. I wholeheartedly approve! (Natasha, I know how you are about chia seeds, trust me, you will really love this pudding, even though it is not a “hot breakfast,” and BoJojo (Joe B.) — check this place out if you haven’t already.)
Also, I think it goes without saying, I really like One Lucky Duck and Pure Food and Wine. Their desserts run a little too sweet for me, but their stuff is great, especially the vegetable wraps and tiramisu, and there’s a takeaway location in Chelsea Market, as well as the restaurant and takeaway in Gramercy.
Lifethyme has a good selection of raw food (both prepared, and raw food grocery), as does Integral Yoga. Both are in the west village.
