Chef Brandt Evans Proudly Presents Pura Vida

“Pure Life.” Not just words, but a philosophy. Chef Brandt Evans proudly offers his latest vision – Pura Vida Restaurant, located in downtown Cleveland, on Public Square. Pura Vida offers a unique and inspired atmosphere serving dishes that Chef Evans says “live for today.” Chef Evans uses the finest and freshest local ingredients from a myriad of trusted sources – many of which are exclusive to Pura Vida. Join us Monday through Friday for lunch, and for special events. We hope to see you soon!

Chef Brandt Evans is one of Ohio’s top chefs. He has received numerous accolades since 2002 following the opening of his first restaurant, Blue Canyon Kitchen and Tavern in Twinsburg, Ohio.

His love for the culinary arts began at age 16, as he entered into his first job at Starboard Tack. He went on to train at the Culinary Institute of America and with a fresh diploma tackled the stove at Charlie Palmer’s Manhattan restaurant, “Alva”. There he perfected his technique and waited for the perfect opportunity to break free from convention.
