The Fat Radish
New York, NY 10002
Village Voice's Description
On a rapidly gentrifying block where Chinatown meets the Lower East Side comes this seasonally inspired, British-influenced gastropub. The exposed brick-walled former sausage factory cultivates a hipster aesthetic worthy of the neighborhood (waiters all wear plaid, diners includes a high preponderance of models). The food, meanwhile, include stick-to-your-ribs fare like Stilton and pork tart and celery root pot pie studded with black garlic that"s satisfying enough to please a carnivore. Vegetables get their moment to shine, too, though, particularly in the excellent raw and fried cauliflower salad with curried yogurt and, of course, in the complimentary namesake radishes gracing every table.
Tips from foursquare
You are near the heart of the city beautiful. Indulge in a Scotch egg, some potpie, a salad, the room.
Kind of an under-the-radar pick, but the burger here is one of the best I've had in NYC. Also, if you don't order the Scotch Egg I'm going to come down and punch you in the face. It's delicious.
The women look like they may be jewelry designers and are overheard pronouncing Kenya “Keen-ya”; the men are almost universally floppy-haired and insist on wearing their plaid scarves through dinner.
People! Good scotch eggs are hard to come by. Egg wrapped in sausage (what?!) and then deep fried (!!!), served with killer spicy mustard.
Room used to be a sausage factory, so get your jokes about Jersey guys ready. You won't find a room full of bros here though, unless they are dudes who really like eating seasonally sourced cuisine.
