Quest's target audience includes both first and second generation readers, those who helped launch the magazine, and those who grew up on it. The magazine showcases New York's most elegant charities, parties, and families, both past and present. Each edition is themed, including the "The 400", "Arts and Culture", "Fall Fashion", and "Holiday" issues. The magazine also publishes David Patrick Columbia's "New York Social Diary", a monthly chronicle of society circuit parties. Contributors have included Dominick Dunne, David Halberstam, Liz Smith, Taki Theodoracopulos, Michael Thomas, and photographers Slim Aarons and Harry Benson.


The circulation is 65,000 plus seasonal distribution of 20,000+ in Palm Beach, Florida and The Hamptons. The median reader age is 43.4 with an annual income of $1,437,000.[citation needed]
