Quality Bistro, a bustling, steak-centric brasserie in midtown Manhattan, offers contemporary takes on bistro classics in a whimsical space. Chef Antonio Mora references his classical French training to create new interpretations of French dishes, like Manila Clams Marinieres, Green Garlic Escargots, and Cauliflower Carpaccio.
There is a wide selection of steaks, which can be customized by adding frites. Other options like Octopus Nicoise with Chickpeas and Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Merguez Spiced Lamb Chops and Poussin Presse with Charred Herbs offer diversity to the menu, to be accompanied by sides like Sunchoke Gratin, Hasselback Butternut Squash, and Carrottes a l’Orange.
The dessert selection will motivate guests to leave the room: Champagne & Caviar with Strawberry Grapefruit Sorbet and Balsamic Caviar, a globe-like Ile Flottante with Crème Anglaise and Praline Roses, Mousse au Chocolat with Cacao Nib Chantilly and Shaved Chocolate. Goat Cheese Croustade is a pull-apart pastry to share for those who prefer to end the meal on a more savory note.
The restaurant is home to a welcoming bar, airy conservatory and an open dining room, accented by custom light fixtures, floor to ceiling wine cabinets, and unique vintage accents. The restaurants also houses dedicated private events spaces. Plush banquettes, zinc tabletops, hand-painted art features, and found objects create a unique and eclectic ambiance throughout the restaurant.
