Quality Meats - Don't have to go all the way to Brooklyn....

Quality MeatsPart of the Fourth Wall Restaurant Group which includes famed NYC steakhouse Smith & Wollensky, Maloney & Porcelli, Park Avenue, and The Post House, Quality Meats knows its steak.

Quality Meats gives you steakhouse meat in a nouveau classic Manhattan environment - designed by AvroKo, of PUBLIC, Stanton Social, and Sapa.

Quality Meats is as much for its steak as it is for the ambiance it creates. At once perfect for "man dates", high-class bachelor parties, and the requisite "minners," Quality Meats somehow maintains the ability to even draw meat-lovin ladies into the house.

The industrial interior is done up to create a loft-style environment more accustomed to the trendy restaurants you find in Meatpacking. However, located on the corner of 6th Ave and 58th Street, the ever-present bankers of 9 W. 57th are its mainstay patrons.

Order the double ribbed steak for two - one lesson...always order steak for 2. Chomping on the huge bone will make you forget that you are a suit and not a country loving, farmer from Nebraska. Tip - do not go to a steakhouse with a non-meat lover. It takes all the fun out of it.

For sides...I always need one potato dish as well as my creamed spinach. Unfortunately, Quality Meats very strangely does not offer creamed spinach. While this is definitely a huge setback, Quality meats has what they term the "new classics"- of which choice dishes include Corn Creme Brulee and Gnocchi and cheese. The Corn Creme Brulee almost, just almost makes up for the lack of creamed spinach.

For dessert - it's all about the ice cream. Everything from the classic Vanilla Bean, to exciting additions like Coffee & Doughnuts and Strawberry Shortcake.

For days you just want to eat your steak in a civilized environment without the hassle of Brooklyn's surly waiters...go to Quality Meats. You won't be disappointed. And the money you save on the cab back from Brooklyn you can use for some fresh oysters to wind down a long week.
