Just when you thought the raw food movement was so eight seconds ago comes Pure Food & Wine [54 Irving Place @ 17/18th Sts, 212-477-1010], Jeffrey Chodorow's new raw food eatery that hopes to make waves with the hipster set when it opens tomorrow. (Chef Matthew Kenney also pledged at Commune, Commisary, and Matthew's.) DailyCandy chatted it up today, and Andrea Strong snuck in for a tasting: "It is remarkable?the flavors are so alive, so intense and vibrant that they almost wake you up." Hmmm. So long as we don't have to be fully awake, perhaps we'll give it a go.
