Village Voice's Description

Calculated to please the gallery-going crowd, this bistro sports a warm crimson room with flattering lighting. The duck confit appetizer was particularly good, the leg and thigh portion moist and aromatic, ringed with greens and diced beets, as was the "crispy shrimp";coated with what looked like Shake 'n Bake and served hanging over the edge of a martini glass brimming with a spectacular salsa cruda. Entrees of mustard-crusted trout and calf's liver smothered in onion confit are also recommended, though the pricey lobster salad contained a meager amount of crustacean in an uninspired mass of greens. They can't all be winners.

    Ted Allen's favorite, on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, is The Red Cat, a local legend serving sauteed zucchini, seared tuna, and everything in-between. Find more tips at FN Local

  • Dave S. on 01/08/12

    Back before the overpriced condos and trendmongers of the Meatpacking, Red Cat was making delicious, creative New American cuisine for the art gallery set and other locals. Still as good as ever.
