The lowdown

Michael Stillman — the son of Alan Stillman, the founder of T.G.I. Friday’s and Smith & Wollensky — opened this restaurant as a sister to Midtown West’s Quality Meats with the idea being that Quality Eats would more casual and cheeky than a typical New York steakhouse while focusing on affordable and lesser-known meat cuts. The cheapest steak on the menu is the Bavette Cut steak, and the most expensive, the filet mignon with mustard-peppercorn sauce, come in at under $40. Other dishes include grilled bacon with peanut butter and jalapeño jelly, sausage-and-pepper toast, jumbo-lump crab with avocado, and lemon-charred chicken. But, like any steakhouse, it may be the sides that are most appealing: brown-bag curly fries, creamed-spinach hush puppies, and baked-potato monkey bread.
