Healthy eateries are not a rarity in the city, but few can say that they’ve been around since the ’70s. Quantum Leap is one of Greenwich Village’s original vegetarian restaurants, and its location makes it a low-key health-food haven for NYU students and local regulars. Unlike most herbivore hotspots, this one stays away from mysterious meat substitutes. Instead, its focus is on traditional and simple veggie-based comfort foods. The menu is diverse, prices are agreeable and you’ll leave with zero guilt.
