We trotted over to Pure Food and Wine in the East Village on Saturday. Have Groupon will travel. Very cozy red velvet and brick, smelling like cardamom kind of place. After the adorably lanky waiter served our entrees, and following much talking amongst ourselves about the pros and cons of doing so, we called him back to our table.
"Umm, I mean, this food is really tasty, but it's kind of cold."
"Ah yes," our waiter explained in a helpful tone, "you're in a raw food restaurant, so that means we don't heat the food up past room temperature."
Oh right. Yes indeed. Good answer, Sir.
