Great dinner for sharing
By Alessia_NYC on 10/20/2011
My dear friend and also an Asian Fusion chef invited me to a dinner at Red Farm. We tasted 85% of the entire menu, and left the restaurant in a food coma â€“ it was painfully delicious! Overall, the food is really spectacular, and is perfect for sharing. Most of it is not heavy, though it is filling. Go with a date, or a small group of friends to enjoy the full experience. The restaurant doesnâ€™t take reservations, which is usually a pet peeve of mine. However, I can let it go for Red Farm. The food is worth the wait, so pack a thermos of wine, and get in line. My 3 favorite dishes: 1) Kumamoto Oysters Meyer Lemon-Yuzu Ice, 2) Pork & Crab Soup Dumplings, 3) Grilled Marinated Creekstone Rib Steak, with Bok Choy.
A must visit!

We went around 7:30pm and put our name on the list to be called when a table is free - really appreciate that idea, more restaurants need to do that. If I may, I'd recommend the Other Room, 2 blocks away, for drinks while you are waiting. We got a table for 2, and proceeded to work our way through the menu. The dim sum is amazing, and all the entrees we got were delicious and fairly large. My friend is a vegetarian so we ended up ordering practically everything veggie on the menu and shared it all. The 5 mushroom dish was to die for. The service was impeccable, very attentive and knowledgeable. We got a bottle of wine, the list is very well priced and a pretty good selection - I'd recommend that, although next time I do want to try the cocktails as well. Will definitely return!
Casual Cantonese-fusion Success.

We dined here late on Saturday. Set in fun, casual W. Village space, half a floor above the street. The food, we mainly ordered small plates in dim sum, was clean in flavor and simply delicious. As a serious eater, I was not very fond of some of the presentation that was done in an overly playful fashion. I will return to try more.
