in A & E/Reviews by

One of Fifth Avenue South’s newest editions, Quarks American Bento, will brighten up your day in an instant.

The colorful atmosphere and lively vibe will leave you feeling refreshed.  Better known simply as Quarks, this recently-opened restaurant is quickly gaining popularity. What better location than in the heart of a college town?

Just as quarks are known as the fundamental building blocks of atoms, the restaurant itself considers its products to be the backbone of a healthy lifestyle.

When you walk into Quarks, you can expect to be greeted with a big smile. The helpful servers display in-depth knowledge of their products’ health benefits and deftly build the meal of your choice to order. After that, you can choose a dine-in experience and grab a barstool or take your food with you on the go.

Quarks offers combinations of whole foods including rice, meat, vegetables and custom sauces to please their customers and will build any meal to order.  While slightly pricey, the quality of the food more than makes up for the few extra bucks.

You can find them open on Monday through Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
