The Red Cat (restaurant located on 10th Avenue between 23rd and 24th streets in Chelsea)
"Fabulous seasonal foods w/a killer wine list! Tip : Go early for dinner to get a table if you've no reservation. It's ALWAYS full!"
By turns cozy and sexy, laid-back and fleet, the Red Cat is a restaurant Rorschach, different things at different times to different people... Its fluid, flexible nature is such that seems - and is - in equal measures a local joint and a destination... I always leave the Red Cat happy.
