This Old Chelsea food hall opened in 1999 and is a New York original. The Red Cat's combination of come-as-you-are sensibilities and straightforward, satisfying, and occasionally irreverent cuisine instantly establish the restaurant as a favorite with New York diners. Mike Cooperman runs the kitchen that's become famous for such whimsical creations as Quick Sauté of Zucchini with toasted almonds and pecorino; Scottish Salmon Crudo with sea beans and trout caviar; and Long Island Duck Beast with farro, dates, mascarpone, almonds and madeira. Such dishes only add to the restaurant's mystique as a place for all seasons, styles and spirits. As Frank Bruni wrote in the New York Times "The Red Cat feels vaguely colonial and tavern like, except when it feels downtown-gallery cool, and apart from those moments when it feels modestly and eclectically elegant." <br /><br />If you are unable to book online, please call us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.
