GATO is Chef Bobby Flay's expression of Mediterranean food, drink, and design. The NoHo location is a 100-year-old building, and GATO is the first restaurant to reside there. GATO combines its NYC roots with a European sensibility and has a casual approach, a bustling environment, and a dedicated passion to its cuisine. The name GATO was inspired by a mysterious orange cat that walked through Mr. Flay's feet on Lafayette Street while he was waiting for a real estate broker to show him the space for the first time. The cat has not been seen since, but his initial appearance has made a permanent impression.<br />GATO is owned by Bobby Flay and Laurence Kretchmer who previously owned the Spanish restaurant, BOLO, together for 15 years. BOLO met an unfortunate demise when its building was torn down to make way for a new development. The partners vowed to revive the spirit of BOLO. They are thrilled to launch GATO as its next renewal.

"Even at 10:30 pm on a Saturday night, the place was crowded, bustling, and bursting with energy. A table in the back was great. Menu was exactly as the one on-line. An assortment of bar choices and appetisers provided a great range of tastes - all capturing the spices, flair and flavors expected from Bobby Flay. A couple were really small and hard to share but overall if you like tapas dining, this is worth the trip."

"Nice Matin, named after the largest daily newspaper in the South of France, gives the Upper West Side a splash of Provençal sunshine and a heady introduction to the cuisine of Nice, home of the pissaladière, pan bagnat and, if we are to believe the menu, a whopping big burger topped with comté cheese, smeared with aioli and served with a heap of rosemary-flecked fries. It's the best thing to happen to a hamburger since Daniel Boulud worked foie gras and short ribs into an all-beef patty. The pleasure is all on the plate, and it carries right through to the desserts.", William Grimes - NY Times.

"While often crowded for dinner, we luxuriated over a wonderful lunch in an almost empty restaurant during a slow time. Choosing and enjoying the wine and food from the extensive menu took time yet we were never felt rushed. I waited took long to try Nice Matin and recommend others don't wait. Great location if visiting the American Museum of Natural History or NY Historical Society. Not really expensive."
