A restaurant to return to....

As a vegetarian from upstate NY, I look forward to visits to the big city mainly because of the plethora if food options available. I have not, however, discovered a restaurant that I have felt the need to return to until I dined at Quantum Leap!! My dining party agreed that we would like to... read more

I go here every time I'm back in New York and usually more than once. For a vegetarian restaurant, this little cafe is a happy surprise. As a vegetarian, I'm used to vegge restaurants that are soulless, unhappy and cramped--one reason I don't often go to vegetarian only restaurants. Quantum Leap has big windows facing Thompson Street, friendly waiters and... More

Cafe with varied vegan/vegetarian options. Found it by coincidence while walking through Greenwich village and loved it. We went twice in three days. The place is very cozy and the staff was super friendly. The food was very good, out of what we tried we recommend the veggie dumplings, the blue nachos, the big leap and the fire rock burgers....

I was so tickled to happen along by this vegan/vegetarian spot near NYU and Washington Square Park in the Village. I had seitan tacos for lunch with, beans, guacamole, vegan sour cream and chips. My daughter tried soba noodles. And my other daughter just had a smoothie. We got the vegan tiramisu for dessert to share. It was the only... More

If you are vegetarian, vegan, or are in the mood for a great salmon dinner, Quantum Leap is the place for you. It is one of the best restaurants in NYC, and has been consistently good for all the years I have been eating there, which is probably about 20 years. It's a hidden treasure as far as I'm concerned.... More

The staff and food were wonderful. We stopped there for lunch and I can really recommend their Big Leap Burger. Best burger I had so far and I'm an omnivore.

We happened on Quantem Leap when we were looking for a late brunch/lunch and got the last table - what a find! The food and service were both excellent and there was good musack. The menu ranges from vegan/vegetarian and includes fish. Good portions, well cooked and very tasty. We'd definitely recommend it and are planning to go back while... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
