Pura Vita Restaurant Review

: This vegan restaurant is from chef/owner Tara Punzone (Real Food Daily), who reaches to her Italian heritage to create a menu featuring Calabrian eggplant stew; lasagna with black truffle cream, spinach, ricotta, mushroom, béchamel and pesto; and various pasta dishes with ingredients sourced from Italy and local farmer’s markets. The wine bar offers a 40-bottle list of Italian vegan, all-natural, biodynamic wine.
