Zagat explores vegan Italian food! Fancy that.
As [Sarma Melngailis, founder of One Lucky Duck and Pure Food and Wine] put it, she’s not trying to replicate the typical Italian experience—rather, she’s creating a new tradition with her food. All the usual Italian flavors—tomato, garlic, herbs—are there, but the dishes are decidedly different from what you might find at the average red-sauce joint in Little Italy.
“Our food stands on its own,” she said.
