Yes, it might take some coaxing to convince your meat-loving companions to visit Pure Food and Wine, a raw-food restaurant, but you can assure them that the food is quite good and surprisingly not "healthy and hippie" tasting. Plus there's a lovely garden out back. Nestled amid tall city buildings, this back garden defines urban oasis. 54 Irving Place, 212-477-1010, oneluckyduck.com
