Upscale vegetarian with a spiritual bent, the Oneness-Fountain-Heart is a sophisticated and surprising find in a lesser trafficked area of Flushing. With a menu that offers a variety of foods, from Greek to classic BLT’s, Bliss Burgers and Portobello Mellow, your serenity at this spot will carry over even while you pay your check.
It’s worth taking a cab from Manhattan for this one. In addition to the blue facades that all the restaurants operated by disciples of Sri Chinmoy share, they also have in common an uncommon devotion to high culinary standards and service. The dishes here to try are the “Duck Surprise”, which is made with vegetarian mock duck, and the vegetarian “Neatloaf”. My personal favourite was “Thai Heaven”, which consists of grilled chicken in a delicate coconut sauce.
Eclectic menu with unusual items, such as Duck Surprise (vegetarian duck with butter-braised broccoli, served with royal rice and pineapple sauce) and Portobello Mellow (grilled portobello mushrooms, red peppers, fresh spinach, and mozzarella in a spinach wrap). The menu also includes a soup-of-the-day, appetizers, salads, and desserts. Open Thursday through Tuesday for lunch and dinner. Closed Wednesday. Full service, fresh juices, espresso/cappuccino, $$.
If you are looking for tasty vegan food, try dining at The Oneness-Fountain Heart. The restaurant is owned and operated by the students of Sri Chinmoy, one of the foremost advocates of international harmony. You can drop in for a vegan smoothie made from fresh, organic fruit loaded with vitamins and minerals. For lunch or dinner, sample the lemon veggie “chicken” served with rosemary lemon sauce or chicken wrap with veggies. For lighter fare, try a bowl of freshly made soup or one of the many salads on the menu. Open daily for lunch and dinner daily including Sunday brunch.
