A Quick Stop at Quality Italian

I'm a huge fan of Quality Meats...it's got one of the best steak tartare's in the city and a pretty exquisite space for a steakhouse.  Their newest venture Quality Italian, is also billed as a steakhouse but with an Italian-American flair.  Once again the space is gorgeous; much more masculine than the sexy Quality Meats with an Old World charm that made me just want to curl up inside and sip on a big glass of red wine.

The main dining room is upstairs on the 2nd floor with a smaller, quieter space on the 1st floor just for grabbing a quick bite or a drink.  I sat at the latter and enjoyed the people watching scene of 7th avenue while enjoying a small bite from the bar menu the Lobster Fra Diavolo Roll.

If you think this looks delicious your completely right.  It's basically a rich, creamy lobster salad stuffed inside a buttery piece of garlic bread and then pressed until warm and toasty.  It's not huge but for only $6 this little snack was incredibly satisfying and was quite the bang for your buck deal at a pricey spot.  I can't wait to check out a full meal in the main dining room next month.
