A Vegan Delight at Pura Vita West Hollywood

We recently had the pleasure of exploring the Brunch and Dinner menus at Pura Vita's West Hollywood location, and the experience was nothing short of exceptional.

Starting with the Bastoncini di Mozzarella, these cashew mozzarella sticks were a delightful introduction. Crispy on the outside, the cashew cheese inside was pulled and creamy, offering a vegan twist on a classic favorite.

The Brioche French Toast with macerated strawberries, coconut whip cream, and powdered sugar was a heavenly combination. The sweetness of the strawberries paired perfectly with the rich and fluffy brioche, creating a brunch dish worth savoring.

The Animal Lovers Calzone was a showstopper, boasting a generous portion size and a mouthwatering blend of cashew mozzarella, cashew ricotta, house-made meatballs, Italian sausage, pepperoni, roasted red peppers, and shaved parmigiano. Each bite was a burst of flavors, showcasing the creativity in plant-based Italian cuisine.

The Lasagna Pura and Black Magic pizza continued to impress with their unique combinations of cashew ricotta, spinach, crimini mushroom, mozzarella, marinara, and black truffle cream sauce. The flavors were rich and satisfying, proving that vegan options can be just as indulgent.

The In Bloom pizza showcased the chef's creativity with caramelized onion purée, garbanzo, fried shallots, almond ricotta, wild arugula, shaved parmigiano, and sumac. Each ingredient contributed to a balanced blend of tastes, making it a standout choice.

Pura Vita's ambiance is also worth mentioning. The dimly-lit restaurant with pleasant music, rustic decor, and friendly staff creates a warm and inviting atmosphere reminiscent of a homely Italian bistro. What sets Pura Vita apart is their dedication to crafting in-house dough, fermented for 48 hours. This commitment to quality and authenticity shines through in every bite.

To elevate the dining experience, Pura Vita offers a phenomenal wine selection that complements the diverse menu. The thoughtfully curated vegan wines add another layer of sophistication to the already impressive culinary journey.

Pura Vita has set a new standard for vegan Italian fare in Los Angeles. Their attention to detail, commitment to authenticity, and ability to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere make it a must-visit for plant-based enthusiasts and food lovers alike.
