Quality Eats


Over at Quality Eats, the “Mischief Night,” is a spooky new cocktail named after the infamous night-before Halloween. The spiced mezcal cocktail is bar director Bryan Schneider’s autumn spin on the margarita and a great way to work your way up to Halloween night or celebrate the spookiest night of the year. The best part is all Quality Eats locations including West Village, Nomad and Upper East Side are serving up the spooky concoction.
