This a cozy place on the lower east side that houses some of the tastiest treats in NYC. Highlights? The pretzels and the fried chicken are outstanding. Good beer selection (drafts and bottles) and a wide array of whiskeys. All the food was spot-on in terms of flavor and presentation. It is worth a trip from the boroughs or the... More

Way down in the East Village sits "The Redhead" a dining room and bar so nondescript that you'll likely walk past maybe even more than once. Once inside you won't get lost given it consists of a modestly-sized bar, a handful of high tabletops all within the same space as a dining room that can be filled by a good-sized... More

Like many others, I was directed to the Redhead from a segment on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I had been looking forward to the Redhead for a long time and decided to go there with 7 other friends while in NYC for a conference. It did not disappoint. We went last minute, and thought that it would be a problem... More

We really enjoyed our meal at The Redhead! It was a bit of a trek from our hotel but well worth it. They managed to seat our party of 8 very quickly, and our server was amazing. Very friendly, efficient, and attentive. Despite being in a large group, the food came very quickly and was well-timed - nobody was left... More

The braised beef short ribs and the shrimp and grits were awesome. The peanut bacon brittle was a great start. The brussels spouts were really good side and the biscuits too. Great quite place for a date.

We went here to celebrate my birthday. The food definitely gave me a party in my mouth. Started off with house made pretzels with beer cheese for slathering. Yum. I had the lowland shrimp and grits. I had never had grits before. Now I can't wait to have them again. My husband had papardelle with eggplant, other roasted veggies and... More

I had the fried chicken which was a great combination of crispy and juicy. My friend had the pork chop which didn't look very appealing but the flavors were great and it was cooked just right. Pretty cool atmosphere and decent beer selection combined to make it a place we will definitely visit again.

Tried this place after seeing a Guy Fieri review that praised the place. The service was friendly, the place low key. We tried the dishes that were recommended based on the research we did prior. The pretzel was good as was the kale salad, the fried chicken was yummy and the shrimp and grits were solid. Overall, all ok but... More

We were visiting our daughter and her husband. I had heard about The Redhead and it turned out to be rather close to the apartment. I asked if we could go there for dinner one of the nights we were in the city. We were able to squeeze in and were early enough to have their fried chicken dinner special.... More
