Quality Bistro is a massive French restaurant in Midtown that has about as much gold detailing as the Salon of Venus at Versailles. The 400-bottle French wine list, and the four different styles of filet mignon might make it sound like a place to send in-laws before 6pm tickets for Chicago, but this place - from the people behind Don Angie, Quality Meats, and about 10 other popular spots - isn’t stuffy. There’s a casual bar area that gets packed with after-work crowds, and dining rooms that are louder and darker than most high-end spots in the area. Share big portions of excellent French-leaning food with a date who you want to impress, or clients who purposefully didn’t book early flights tomorrow.
