Welcome to Candle 79, NYC's premiere vegan oasis. Delicious, creative Food Fresh from Farm to Table. Organic wine and sake cocktail bar. Elegant, Organic, Local, Seasonal, Compassionate, Green, Step Inside, and discover a world of sustainable beauty in food and drink. In 1987 Joy Pierson began frequenting Healthy Candle as a customer and friend. She eventually became the in-house nutritionist for the fast-growing eatery. Bart was so impressed by her commitment to the vegetarian and holistic movement that he made her a partner in the business. As their mutual passion for their mission grew, so did their power as a team in the vegetarian movement. The Healthy Candle in its 10 year evolved from a juice bar and vitamin shop, into a full service juice bar and cafe featuring a vegetarian menu of homemade soups, sandwiches, salads and entrees.
