Fresh juices and vegetarian and vegan fare will feature prominently on the menu at Brookline's newest kosher shop, Pure Cold Press Juice & Salad Bar, which is coming soon from the Rami's team. (Yep, another juice bar.)
Haim Cohen is the owner of Rami's and Pure Cold Press (but not the food truck Rami's — that's a licensed business). His father, the namesake Rami, started the kosher restaurant nearly 25 years ago. "As much as I'm thankful to Rami's, it's still my father's name on the sign," Cohen said in a press release. "The time is right for me to do my own thing and apply the lessons I've learned at Rami's to something new and fresh."
There will be about 10 juices, as well as fresh-pressed coconut and other milks, custom juices, smoothies, and healthy shots. Pure Cold Press will have a salad bar, plus signature salad options like smoked sweet potato with mustard, swiss chard and candied pecans; and kale slaw with napa cabbage and pomegranate seeds. Sandwiches — including gluten-free options — will feature harissa, basil, and tomato on olive bread; burrata cheese and beet with arugula on a baguette; and a baby spinach, pine nut, and raisin "panini wrap." There will also be soups and desserts.
With trays, the requisite slides, and exposed brick walls, Pure Cold Press will have a "cool school cafeteria" vibe when it opens. The owner is eyeing Wednesday, June 3 for its debut.
