If you like the Quality Eats in the West Village, you’ll probably like the one on the Upper East Side as well. They serve the same menu as their original casual steakhouse, and the only difference is really the space - this location is a little bit brighter, and you see more families here. As for food, you’ll eat affordable steaks, along with less-expected stuff like peanut butter & jelly bacon and birthday cake ice cream. Just expect crowds, and don’t be surprised if you see a few strollers.

Fred's at Barneys NY
Why on earth are we reviewing a famous department store restaurant? Because it’s hilarious, that’s why. Nowhere else will you find such an entertaining mix of blown-out 55-going-on-22 moms, burnt-out post-college city natives, and people who think they look like celebrities but most definitely aren’t.
What we have found at Blind Tiger is a New York City bar that actually has an extensive microwbrew selection AND excellent food. Unfortunately, the place gets very crowded at times.
Root & Bone
Root & Bone in the East Village is Southern food done right. Hit it for dinner, hit it for brunch, hit it for takeout. Whatever you do, just hit it.

Quality Italian is a neo-classic Italian restaurant in Midtown melded with a steakhouse. We like it for the variety on the menu and the massive space.
