    It's on Irving Mill's dinner menu, as an accompaniment to the duck breast. Haven't tried it there myself, though.

      Shorty's 32 in Soho has a great quinoa side - not to mention great short ribs, mac and cheese, and excellent taste in music.

        Curly's Vegetarian makes amazing Quinoa pancakes at Brunch on the weekends.
        Highly recommended.

          I cannot recall if it is quinoa or not, but there is a "risotto" on Perilla's menu that is delicious.

            I'm not a huge quinoa fan, so I don't know what the ones suggested taste like, but we were at sushi samba and they had a dish that I actually loved that my friend ordered.

              If you're willing, you can make it. Whole Foods sells it, among other natural food stores; it only takes 15 minutes to make it plain. (You can find recipes, if you want to get tricksy with it.)
