Quintessence Restaurant Review

: Nothing is cooked over 118 degrees at this downtown Manhattan vegetarian restaurant. No dairy, starch or soy are used in the dishes here, which include the Buddha Bowl (build your own from vegetables and nuts), Middle Eastern platter, ravioli of the day, and a number of other healthy entrées and "guiltless" desserts.
