This Old Chelsea food hall opened in 1999 and 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. David Battin currently runs the kitchen that's become famous for such whimsical creations as Quick Sauté of Zucchini with toasted almonds, and pecorino; Duck Risotto with maitake, ricotta salata, and truffle; and Homemade Pappardelle with oxtail ragu, pecorino romano, and rosemary. Such dishes only add to the restaurant's mystique as a place for all seasons, styles, and spirits. 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."

This is a solid restaurant. It never disappoints. Good food. Good service. Warm welcoming atmosphere. We have been coming here on an off for over ten years. The perfect winter restaurant - cozy - not too noisy - comfortable bar.

Menu was limited for fish eaters--just Hake and Skate: two undesirable fish items. Otherwise, service, atmosphere and veggie appetizers were v. good

I love the Red Cat! The only problem is I don’t eat meat or poultry so I do wish there was a pasta option without meat as an entree.

Service is pleasant, curteous and with a smile; we went for Saturday brunch and the restaurant was fairly empty. Food is prepared as ordered - I had the burger medium well, and is accompanied by amazing home made potato chips - I could have eaten a whole lot more of those (they should sell them on the menu as a side!) Wine list by the glass is smartly curated and well priced.
Definitely a place to stop in if you're in Chelsean visiting galleries or walking the High-Line.
