The Quantum Leap Restaurant in Lenox Hill offers an amazing array of delicious, satisfying vegan and vegetarian menu choices, with fresh fish and chicken options. It was my third time dining there, so I write as a very happy, repeat customer.

This recent visit was on a steamy summer day when a friend and I were welcomed into a comfortable air-conditioned space surrounded by some cool jazz.

The service was courteous and attentive as tall glasses of cold water and menus appeared immediately. Economically welcoming was the $12 lunch menu from which we ordered. The portions were generous, beautifully prepared, and delicious. Living a vegan lifestyle for May and June, I often missed eating salmon. 

Exactly as I like it

Today at Quantum Leap Restaurant in Lenox Hill was the day to return to having an occasional meal with fish, and I was not disappointed. The skinless serving of salmon was large, flaky, and cooked exactly as I like it–medium. The preparation and flavors were complemented by brown rice and perfectly steamed vegetables with a light citrus sauce. Learning how to make vegetables taste this good through simple steaming is now on my bucket list.

Delicious Pico de Gallo

My friend chose from the Vegan/Vegetarian side of the menu and enjoyed the Texan BBQ Seitan Pita and Soup Combo. The pita was stuffed with fresh, crunchy vegetables like lettuce, tomato, cucumber, cabbage, and carrots, along with the seitan and a delicious Pico de Gallo. It arrived with a generous bowl of Quantum Leap’s homemade carrot ginger dressing.  The side was a delightful, perfectly seasoned lentil soup.
