For our most recent sometimes-monthly-depending-on-whether-we-have-babysitting date night, we went out with a couple friends to dinner and the orchestra. I know, we were gone for six whole hours.
The orchestra, as always, was fabulous, but as I’m not a music critic, I’ll leave the discussion of Stravinsky to others. I don’t know if I qualify as a food critic either, but I’m going to write about our meal anyway.
This time around we went to Public Square to visit Pura Vida, another restaurant with a fresh and local philosophy. Pura Vida, meaning ‘pure life,’ offers a “unique and inspired atmosphere” with dishes that “live for today,” according to Chef Brandt Evans. The atmosphere is indeed unique, with a modern feel, but not overly industrial. Lots of natural light, but also a revolving color scheme from amidst the hanging drapes on the ceiling (which is why some of the pictures have a blue tint and others are more reddish; Pura Vida, you really messed with my white balance).
