Has anyone eaten at either of these places? I'm headed to NY in a couple of weeks and want to try a raw food restaurant. I've looked at the menu's and they seem fabulous. :D

are those in NYC? I'm going there in about a month and plan on eating at pure food and wine! I'm so excited I can't even tell you!
*EDIT* Ok, now i'm not sure WHERE I want to eat in NYC and I'll probably only have time to try one raw food place! wow! ;)

I ate in Quintessence last year, it was good; my friend ate in Bonobo's in Manhattan. I would try Pure for sure now and please check out that cannoli Chef Russell James teased us about at his website. Just do google. He is in UK. See that picture and then you will see what I mean.
Bonobo's Vegetarian Restaurant and Store. 18 East 23rd St. New York, NY 10010. 212 505-1200 ... Enjoy and jealous here.

I have eaten at Blue Green and Caravan.
Blue Green : It is SMALL, and was entirely empty the whole time I was there. They don't have waitstaff, but rather you order at the counter and eat at small tables. It was kind of uncomfortable and the food is pricy for such small portions. I would say this is good as a takeout place, or for raw ice cream. It is basically the same as the ice cream at Pure, but a little cheaper. Great fresh green juice!
Caravan: This place has a funky, fun, vibe. They had salsa music playing, and an eclectic crowd. My feedback would be that everything we ordered turned out to be a salad. So if you like really no-fuss, non-gourmet raw, this might be the place for you. It was decent, but not the best salad i have ever had. I got the carrot cake for dessert, and it was not good. The bruscetta appetizer was pretty good, I would get that again.
Quintessence: Awesome. Delicious food with a great combination of simple, and gourmet. Moderately priced. The pizza is to live for. The dessert is awful.
Pure: Total elegant dining experience. Pricy though with small portions. I think it's worth it though.
Enjoy NYC :) Lots of great raw resources there!
