Verdict/Summary: MAYBE - question is, what are you looking for? Quality Eats is a chic, quality restaurant in Greenwich known for their modern twists on classic dishes (eg. $29 for a hanger steak, steak tartare for $16). Please note that this is NOT a traditional New York steakhouse or porterhouse, so don’t come here looking for something similar to Peter Luger’s or Del Frisco’s. But come if you're looking for fresh ingredients, cooked-to-order and affordable steaks without having to break your bank. Their steaks are solid, though their appetizers have room for improvement.  

What to Order: The Don Ameché steak ($29), served nicely charred, sliced, and pink-in-the-middle; with amazing chicken liver mousse toast and balsamic-dressed arugula

We each individually ordered a main (steaks!) and shared some appetizers and sides.

Appetizers (pics on the left): Not bad but neither were memorable,

  • Sausage and pepper toast ($15)
  • Crab and avocado ($18)

Sides (unpictured): Overpriced for portion sizes and just alright.

  • Grilled bokchoy ($8)
  • Spicy mushrooms ($8)

To be honest, these weren't impressive and I probably won't order them again if I returned. However, I did hear great things about their grilled octopus ($25)!
