Guys, I had the best steak ever. And I need to share.
Having dinner with my bf and his mom is always a treat in and of itself. While she’s in NYC on business it’s always nice to catch up! But having dinner at Quality Italian- with the two of them on Memorial Day- was even more fantastic because it was such a lovely experience and the food was just fantastic! The restaurant itself is very trendy, modern and classy. Moreover, I always love restaurants that have big, bright windows and Quality Italian has two walls of them!
I rarely dine at steakhouses and this one did not disappoint. For appetizers we split the homemade ricotta cheese. I was a bit skeptical. But man. It was so good- reminded me of the honey and butter toast I used to make for breakfast in grade school! The creamy silky smooth cheese was spread on a cutting board, drizzled with honey and pine nuts. My main course- my Tomahawk Ribsteak- was literally perfect! Meaty, fatty, tender perfection. And they made a fancy, delicious steak sauce table side! I’m a huge fan of meal preparation table side… I like seeing how things are made. Then I like to act like I could do it myself… yeah right. We also split the Artichoke Maccheroni side dish, which was basically mac and cheese, on steroids. Cheesy, gooey and creamy on the inside, crunchy on top and mixed in were solid bites of artichoke hearts. Ridiculous.
For dessert, we split three beautifully prepared sweet creations! I gotBurnt Marshmellow Gelato. It was a cross between a super fancy version of the s’more mixed with a rich, dense chocolate tart. <3 My bf opted for a classic- the tableside prepared cannoli! I def got excited when the C Olive Oil Cake and Pizelles. Of which I also indulged. It was all sooo good. I was stuffed… but obviously, I wasn’t about to punk out on dessert. That’s like against all of my being. Although I couldn’t devour all of my food, rest assured, none went to waste!
