Quintessence Restaurant offers its customers LifeFood - food for youth and beauty. It’s raw vegan, organic, kosher cuisine that hasn’t been heated above 118ºf. Chef/Owners Dan Hoyt and Tolentin Chan are only interested in bringing their customers the best, because they care to share with them just how great food can taste, and at the same time be so good for you. Dining at Quintessence will help you to eat your way to a healthier existence, which is why so many long time raw vegans find that they rarely get sick, experience greater mental clarity, and have a much more positive outlook on life.

The decor of Quintessence, which is the same at all their outlets, could be described as simple, good taste. White linen ceiling drapes, wooden tables and one exposed brick wall hint at the bare naturalness of it all, while predominantly white surroundings with a touch of green are what you might expect in a place so given to purity and freshness.

The menu presents a wide variety of choices. Swing by on the weekends to sample the now famous Lasagna - layers of zucchini and yellow squash sandwiched between sausage-spiced wheatmeal, Italian tomato sauce and creamy nut cheese.

Experience the radiant health and youthful rejuvenation that only LifeFood provides. Go Raw Vegan at Quintessence, where it’s all about real food for real people. Quintessence would please a connoisseur of fine restaurants in general, but it especially delights the vegan and those who wonder if raw food can be as satisfying as cooked food. It can be.
