QUALITY MEATS CELEBRATES THE NEW YEAR WITH NEW MENU ITEMS
Quality Meats Miami Beach opened in late February 2015 to accolades from diners and press alike, including rave reviews and inclusion on every relevant Best New Restaurants round-up including The Miami Herald, Miami Magazine, Zagat.com, Thrillist.com and Florida Trend among others. Not content to rest on his laurels chef de cuisine Patrick Rebholz has elected to start off the year in style by adding some interesting and delicious new dishes to the Quality Meats menu. Making a special “pop up” appearance – the Signature Chicken Parm Pizza, a buzz worthy import from NYC sister restaurant, Quality Italian, is the star of the new line-up. Intended for two diners at $32 per person, the 14-inch chicken parmesan topped with mozzarella, Parmesan and Pecorino is delivered to diners on a pizza rack, and is sliced table side. So popular in New York that the restaurant often runs out midway through dinner service, the dish is accompanied with all the requisite pizza toppings including shakers of parmesan, pepper, dried black olives and Calabrian chili honey. It’s the perfect addition to Quality Meats Miami Beach’s showstopper menu. Other new menu items make their way onto the charcuterie board – house made ricotta, accompanied with mangrove honey or La Quercia prosciutto. Standout new appetizers include two seasonally fresh selections – a snapper ceviche with local strawberries and heirloom tomatoes and yellowfin tuna carpaccio with roasted beets and lemon olive oil. Among the newest main courses, two new selections are sure to please non-carnivores -- juicy lemon-charred chicken, and the Quality Lobster Bake: Miami’s version of a New England style lobster bake complete with freshly shucked corn and potatoes. Signature classics won’t be going anywhere –favorites like the everything-crusted branzino, aged bone-in sirloin and house cured slab bacon have found their way into diners’ hearts – and permanent status on the menu. Quality Meats Miami Beach is located at 1501 Collins Avenue with onsite parking – a rarity on South Beach. The restaurant is open for dinner on Sunday and Monday from 6PM to 11PM and from Tuesday through Saturday until midnight.
