Omnivore - Pura Vida to open for weekend lunch
Pura Vida (656 N. Highland Ave., 404-870-9797), probably the best tapas restaurant in town, is opening weekends for lunch, beginning Dec. 1. Hours are noon-5:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. According to press materials:
To kick it off, on Dec. 1, Pura Vida will feature roast puerco, a traditional Puerto Rican-style pig roast, as the weekend special. Naturally grown Berkshire pork, from Gum Creek Farms, a local Georgia farm, are grown on pastures that include grasses and clovers. The pastures are not treated with insecticide or herbicide. Rotational grazing methods are used for disease management and better forage nutrition. These animals are raised without growth hormones or preventative antibiotics.
The restaurant is also offering chef Hector Santiago's hot sauces and adobo spice mixes for sale, along with a Puerto Rican coffee blend.
