Antonio Mora

Quality Italian

Chef Antonio Mora came to Quality Italian after working behind the stoves of Daniel, Frankie’s Spuntino and Prime Meats.  His earthy, rustic take on dining has influenced the contemporary versions of steakhouse classics at Quality Meats.  With influences that range from traditional French chefs to some of New York City’s brightest up-and-comers, Mora bases his cuisine largely in French technique with the simple, straightforward style of a country inn to create accessible dishes that could be shared over a family table.
