Welcome to: Quintessence

Quintessence is an oasis – a gourmet, dining retreat that relaxes and rejuvenates beyond belief. Our food is comprised of some of the most rare and exotic ingredients found on earth, and combine to form the elegant, innovative dishes that have been celebrated as some of the very best found in New York City.

But more than just great tasting food, everything served at Quintessence is home-made, organic, vegan, mostly raw, and gluten free. We understand you seek more from your food than is offered at most restaurants, and our commitment to both flavor and health has created an unparalleled dining experience that will not only satisfy your appetite, but energize, revitalize and refresh from the inside out.

So join us. Take a break from the city to enjoy our spa-like environment and experience the essence of food with Quintessence.
