About Red Cat
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."

Red Cat Ratings and Reviews
They have a no outside drink policy which is fine so they took my girlfriends Starbucks coffee. Upon leaving they told us they there the drink out. This is unacceptable. If they were going to throw it out they should have told us. Most restaurants have a policy where they hold it off on the side somewhere.
Food was also too pricey (and salty) for what you got.
We always enjoy Red Cat. The food is reliably good - we have enjoyed everything, each visit. The waiters are lovely. Could use a bit more 'service' with the staff who actually serve the food. We will definitely return. Neighborhood favorite, great late night dinner and bar, and special occasion restaurant.
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.
We sat in a cozy corner of the restaurant perfect for people watching and date night. Table number 58 I think, ask for this table on reservation as it’s popular. The service was quick and very attentive. The food was great, especially the tempura beans! We will definitely recommend and come again on our next trip to New York! 😊
Fantastic food, fantastic service.
We were visiting NYC and had brunch here.
I cannot say enough about our server, Kate.
She was phenomenal. She went out of her way to accommodate one of our friends with a food allergy and was just generally nice.
I would highly recommend this place.
Every item we had was delicious - including a blood orange mimosa.
Do not leave the restaurant without trying the tempura green beans.
Spent the weekend in NYC and this was my favorite restaurant! So lovely! Wonderful veggies and the skate was as delicious as it was 15 years ago. Perfect service and a wonderful wine selection at great prices! My jacket was delivered warm to me at the conclusion of dinner and I was grateful for the extra touch!
We had the tempura green beans with a honey mustard sauce for an appetizer. Well worth the trip from Virginia, just for the beans! (See photo.) I had the local skate, very fluffy and light and well prepared. Husband had the flank steak and he loved it. It’s a cozy, charming place and we will return.
