The Red Cat Purrs

The Red Cat provides pleasant and enjoyable dinning as you dream about days on the Cape or in the Vineyard. The rustic interior of barn side panels and candle flickering lamps may seem a little too "colonial", but the modern art and general atmosphere make it very comfortable. The restaurant has very good wait staff, and attentive chef and a kitchen that prepares most enjoyable meals. While the intensity of the food is soft, the pleasure is full and the overall dinning experience is pleasant. You can almost hear the cat purring.

The Red Cat is our home away from home for a reason! Excellent food, cozy, chic atmosphere and the warmest service in Manhattan. Danny Abram's flagship is managed superbly by the dapper Connor at the door while Jared behind the bar pours a mean Fresca (house specialty). Can you name another restaurant in the city that serves bacon tempura? Divine. The best of the best.

This is one of the places you can return to often, knowing you'll like the menu selection and food preparation. It's not fussy, but lovely. And any restaurant that serves a delicious sardine appetizer immediately wins my vote. The food was excellent. Dinner was around $50 (with wine) and well worth it. It's casual, but could be special occasion.

Though the prices are high, the food and the service is worth it. The main courses are surprisingly refined.
