Lead by executive chef Gregory Laprad, Quiessence serves ontemporary American cuisine. The restaurant is located at the Farm at South Mountain, a historic property that now houses businesses dedicated to freshness and wellbeing. In keeping with that dedication, the menu showcases fresh offerings from the local market and changes daily based on seasonality. On any given day, dinner may include dishes like roasted eggplant soup and crispy duck confit. Even the ambience is fresh: large, airy windows, fluttering white table cloths, and surrounding greenery make Quiessence a pastoral dining paradise.
