I don't regret visiting here; I'd once owned their cookbook, until I gave it to my sister. The menu had my interest before I read turkey. I don't do this review justice, I can't remember their titles for each item I ate, but you'd know...More

We ate here a few nights ago when visiting NYC on my friend's recommendation; it is one of his regular places to go for dinner with-in his neighborhood (Chelsea). I can easily see why. This is a tucked-away not-too-large (but not tiny by any means)...More

Menu is uncomplicated but well laid out with plenty of choices for everyone from vegetarians to meat eaters. Lunch is particularly good. Desserts are also worth saving room for.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

This Old Chelsea food hall 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. 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." If you are unable to book online, please call us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.
