Quality Meats - New York
An integral part of Fourth Wall Restaurants, Quality Meats is the sister venue of the flagship Smith & Wollensky location, Maloney & Porcelli, Quality Italian, Park Avenue Autumn and Quality Meats in Miami Beach. The restaurant showcases acclaimed father-and-son team Alan and Michael Stillman's modern interpretation of a steakhouse with updated renditions on classic dishes while maintaining the high expectations of carnivores. To make this happen, they've commissioned two of New York's oldest and most respected butchers to hand-select and cut all meats to their specifications. Strassburger Meats and Pat LaFrieda have earned their reputations over generations as the finest meat purveyors available. You'll spot this in cuts ranging from the dry-aged Porterhouse to the Cajun short rib. Non-steakhouse favorites includes a range of glorious options, from shellfish towers to hearty fish entrees. The space succeeds in being simultaneously rustic, inviting and luxurious with rich details. Interior details include an homage to a traditional "meat locker" interior with finished walnut planks covering the length of the downstairs dining room wall. These elements coexist flawlessly with understated accents drawn directly from butcher shop inspiration, such as white ceramic tiles, and chandeliers made of pulleys and large steel butcher hooks.
