Description: This Old Chelsea food hall 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. 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." If you are unable to book online, please call us directly and we will do our best to accommodate you.

went here after "sleep no more" had reservations. crowded. staff all very nice. food was delish.
had tempura green beans, lamb ribs, shell steak and black out cake. bread good quality and served with olive oil. i had cranberry margarita. good quality, just too tangy for me. had a glass of syrah. very good, but $12 glass. too much. steak was $41. again prob $8 over priced. dessert was good, but unremarkable, esp at $10. $6 would be more appropriate. would return when in chelsea area

Went to this restaurant during a girls' trip to NYC. Picked this spot as it had something for everyone. The tempura green beans with the mustard sauce was an excellent appetizer for sharing. The country pate was unexceptional, however, nothing wrong with it, just ordinary. The skate main course was fantastic - light & full of flavour. Everyone around the table wanted a taste, and all said they'd order it next time! Friend who had the chicken main course enjoyed it, however the salmon main was fairly bland. Service was good, and the wines (both by the bottle & glass) were very good. Nice atmosphere, too. Prices reasonable.

Went for lunch, had a decent meal. Slightly more pricey than I would have liked for what it was. Not too many vegetarian items.

This is a great place to eat with a healthy menu. You can go casual or dress as well, and still feel comfortable. Try a cocktail or two or three. You will likely find folks from the neighborhood, friendly and eager to chat. The staff is amazing. Have a great meal, enjoy The Red Cat.

We loved this small restaurant in Chelsea. The food was fantastic and the staff was very nice. It was one of the best meals I had in NYC during our trip. Super fresh and simply prepared food made this place stand out.
