About

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.

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.

We had a lovely experience at Gato. The food is excellent and the bar had a lovely selection of cocktails and wine. It was early on a Wednesday evening but it was quite noisy even 1/2 full. This is Bobby’s signature restaurant so it has become something of a destination and prices reflect that. Seems like it’s overpriced by about 10-12% in my opinion, but for a special occasion it’s a good spot.

My husband and I traveled to NYC from LA and we had dinner at Gato on Saturday night. It was wonderful! The restaurant manager, Jake, was so gracious and kind. He truly made our dining experience fantastic!

We went on Saturday at 5:45 it was the only time we could get . The place was almost empty and stayed that way until we left . The waiter was pushy . I had Halibut which was cooked perfectly . It had and excellent spicy red sauce . But nobody was given spoons and we didn't have any bread to eat the remaining sauce . The deserts were great and the complimentary Sherry was nice . Overall you get 4 stars and if you had bread and spoons you would have gotten 4.5

Pros: Waiter was great. Food was served quickly, so were the drinks. The waffles were delicious and so were the muffins and ricotta that were served as appetizers.

Cons: burger and home fries were over seasoned. The oven baked eggs were fair, but not enough of a serving for a brunch. Eggplant and fried oyster at the bar were good. Tuna was way too salty.

Again, I flew across the country to have diner at Gato. And again, I left with the best experience yet. Each tone I go it is as good or better than the last. Keep it up Mr. Flay and Staff at Gato!
