Quality Eats

OPENED130 DAYS AGO

New York is known for its traditional steakhouses although, tradition also states that getting a good steak could cost you. Now, the hit affordable steakhouse, Quality Eats has opened a new outpost, this time on the Upper East Side. The new steak joint has been welcomed with open arms when it opened its first location last year and there’s also a third location set to open in Nomad later this year.

The Spot:

Quality Eats’ secret to their affordable prices comes from their knowledge of meats. You won’t find six-month aged wagyu cut here but you will find an equally tasty cut that has less marketing dollars behind it, is lesser known and therefore leaves you with more cash to spend on the wine to pair with your steak. The new space, on 2nd Avenue, comes with an outdoor patio with seating for 40 and a communal table seating 12 customers.

The Food:

The chef, Craig Koketsu, keeps the menu classic but adds his own, contemporary twist. All meat is sustainable and grass-fed and includes cuts like a bavette, skirt steak and beef rib. Traditional sides get given a fun twist like creamed spinach that comes in hushpuppy form and bacon topped with peanut butter and jalapeño jelly. New menu items to their second location also include the addition of fish like Tuna au Poivre, a Grilled Salmon Steak and Branzino Frites.

Dessert also gets special attention following a partnership with UES hit bakery, Orwasher’s who will be serving their rugelach ice cream. There’s also a creme brûlée cake that is caramelised at the table.

The Damage:

Steak’s mainly stay under the $30 mark with the exception of the beef rib which comes in at $31.

In A Nutshell:

This lower-cost version of the traditional NYC steakhouse is a must-visit for any meat-eaters looking to satisfy their cravings without breaking the bank.
