A friend suggested meeting at The Red Cat, and I smiled in anticipation! I looked forward to my return to The Red Cat and seeing owner Jimmy Bradley.
We started with the not-to-be missed tempura green beans with sweet hot mustard ($14), eating way too many of them as they are irresistible..
Then we shared two sandwiches, the heavenly egg, falafel and caramelized onions on a brioche roll with chili aioli ( $15) and one from their El Gato Rojo (the red cat) menu listing those items they often serve the staff. This was a pressed panko-coated chicken sandwich, spread with a cannellini bean puree, avocado, queso Oaxaca and a jalapeño mayo ($15). Both came with house made chips.
We weren’t able to finish either because we ate so many of the green beans!
