Okay, the title is a misleading. I needed the awesome, raw, vegan food that gets served up at Quintessence in Manhattan that filled my belly. But my lunch date, Gena of Choosing Raw, filled my heart and filled my soul. Gena is someone with whom I can share everything. My hopes, fears, anxieties, and successes. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G How lucky am I?
We spent nearly two hours catching up on our lives and somehow, in the midst of the flurry of conversation and laughter, we feasted.
I’ve been nursing a nasty summer cold so I started with a hot ginger and lemon drink.
The menu at Quintessence is huge and I didn’t not want to be bothered with decisions. I had a Groupon and I wasn’t afraid to use it, so I opted for the Tuesday Prix Fix special.
And finally, the Pineapple Chocolate Mousse Parfait.
Yeah, it was crazy good.
But 2 hours with Gena? Crazy better.
