one lucky duck- good, but insanely expensive




just a short and sweet mofo post/restaurant review today. while you're reading this, I'm heading to JFK airport and getting ready to leave the country!



While I was in New York City last April, my friend D. and I were walking around. It was a chilly day, so we decided to duck (no pun!) into a cozy little place to warm up. D. mentioned that she had seen a raw vegan place that she thought I might be interested in, One Lucky Duck. Well, I'd heard of them (Pure Food and Wine's little outpost), and I was intrigued.

So we ordered a pot of tea to share, and a piece of tiramisu to share. The bill came to over $23. That is stupid expensive! Good thing the tiramisu was good because... I'm never going back here again until a)I win the lottery b)I get a sugar daddy or c)I decide to quit paying my mortgage!

The next day I went back there and said I'd really liked their raw tiramisu, and I don't live near the restaurant, so would they be willing to share the recipe with me? The answer was "no, but you can buy our upcoming cookbook." PFFFFFT.

So not surprised.

Anyway, one of the Cafe Gratitude books has a tiramisu recipe in it.

23 $? bazu, I am sure you can come up with your own great recipe of raw tiramisu!
Have a safe flight to Europe!

Oooh, that looks beyond delicious. But, what a price tag. :/ I'm sure it wouldn't be that difficult to re-create!

I *hate* places like that...overpriced and unwilling to help :-( No fair!

I'm not shocked they didn't offer you the recipe, they got bills to pay! ha. I'm sure the cookbook version will be different.

Looks good, but too pricey.
