Quaint Casual Dining In Sunnyside
Sunnyside Neighborhood / Sunnyside Restaurants / Queens Restaurants / Queens Buzz. Quaint is well named. In the dictionary quaint is defined as 'having an old fashioned attractiveness or charm'. The restaurant provides an comfortable atmosphere ideal for conversations with good friends. The restaurant probably seats no more than 30 to 40 people, including the outdoor seating space in the back. The bar area and the outdoor patio provide dimension to the friendly, neighborly atmosphere. The open grill imparts a certain sense of theater and provides the diner with a hint of expectation.
Quaint Menu - Restaurants In Sunnyside
One Friday night I went down there with an old friend for a late dinner. My friend was recovering from his journey via the airlines. Quaint's menu appears to be chosen with consideration for both one's taste buds and one's health. Many of the appetizers are salads, but calamari is included as well as mussels. I had the roasted beet salad with walnuts, while my friend had the calamari. I tried some and it was cooked just right: it still had a bit of chewy texture and the fried coating wasn't greasy. As for the beet salad, the beets were flavorful and light, complemented by the mix of blue cheese and walnuts.

Quaint Service & Wine - Sunnyside Restaurants
It was quiet that night so the service was spot on. We could see where the cooks were in preparation of our entrees, so we could actually manage our wine consumption in tandem with the cadence of the meal. We had the house wine, which was a flavorful California cabernet.
Main Courses - Salmon Ratatouille & Hanger Steak
My friend had the salmon ratatouille and I had the hanger steak and mashed potatoes. We exchanged samples of each. The hanger steak was cooked to a pink perfection and had a soft juicy taste to it. The mashed potatoes slid down nicely too. The salmon was nicely done, and left mostly to stand on its own, but complemented by the ratatouille. All so very healthy, I didn't mind having an extra drink. We passed on dessert, given the late hour, but Quaint offers a 'healthy' selection of after dinner drinks, of which we took advantage. We each had a sambuca which topped off our repas. The name really works as the restaurant appears to be run in a very thoughtful and comfortable way.
