Yet another New York restaurant opens with millennial pink splashes throughout, this time at the Upper East Side location of budget steakhouse Quality Eats. It’s the second restaurant for the critical hit that started in Greenwich Village and will soon also debut in NoMad.
Like the downtown original, this follow-up serves a similar menu of steaks for under $30 — most notably the popular $19 bavette cut — with the addition of a fish section of the menu and new desserts. Check out the full menu here.
The new 55-seat space, pictured above, evokes the original but adds on-trend Instagrammable moments. It’s full of cute details, like lightbulb-head artwork, a steak knife-tiled bathroom wall, illustration-engraved bar, and pink-emblazoned aprons, that are ripe for a photo opp. There’s also a 40-seat outdoor patio.
Quality Eats is now open at 1496 Second Avenue Sunday through Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and until 12 a.m. Thursday through Sunday. Lunch and brunch will start soon.
