When Quince moved to a new location in 2009, it upgraded its space and style. It’s elegant but not stuffy, with plush mushroom-colored settees and ivory leather seating giving a clean (almost austere) color palette. In the main dining room, a Murano glass chandelier adds a little sparkle and glitz to the understated decor. To one side of the room, tables flank an exposed brick wall. To another, a marble bar with room for 12 diners allows for a slightly more casual experience. The restaurant’s art collection includes large-scale works by contemporary photographers including Edward Burtynsky. A barside lounge area allows for a pre-dinner cocktail with an outdoor view. If a room with a view is important to you, sitting at the bar or lounge is essential because once you’re in the dining room, it’ll take a lot of neck-craning to see the windows.
