Pure Food & Wine Remains Closed, Papered With Signs Protesting Unpaid Wages

Things do not look good for the Union Square vegan restaurant.

Raw vegan restaurant Pure Food & Wine was still dark around 6 p.m. last night, two days after its staff marched out en masse to protest not being paid in month. It looks like the protestors abandoned their posts in the cold, but they did leave behind a big pile of signs, so clearly the fight is not over. Meanwhile, the restaurant has posted a sign of its own:

At least it's no longer blaming the closure on a flood. No one's picking up at the restaurant or corporate headquarters, but reservations are still up on OpenTable.
