First things first: it might look like it but that's NOT a pizza -- it's the massive pizza-sized chicken parm at Quality Italian in NYC. And not like personal pan pizza-sized, either. It's at LEAST a medium.
They plunk it down on the table with a pizza rack with a bottom floor of spices.
The mozz, Parm, and pecorino go right up to the herbed bread crumb edge.
It's sliced tableside with a pizza cutter -- a knife and fork are for people who eat tiny chicken Parms.
Top it all off with a little dried black olive seasoning. No giantic chicken parm is complete without it.
The sister restaurant to neighboring Quality Meats, this Midtown steakhouse focuses on modern and upscale Italian-American food, like a show-stopping chicken parm served like a pizza. The bi-level space has a swagger that appeals to the business dinner crowd and a rustic vibe that plays into the Italian theme. The classic wine list is predictably heavy on Italian varieties, and you'll find familiar drinks, like a Moscow mule and aperol spritz, on the cocktail menu.
