The Red Cat

The Red Cat is a hidden treasure on Tenth Avenue and about 23rd Street — a good place to go after a seeing nearbyred cat 002 movie, walking along High Line or visiting Chelsea Piers or Chelsea Market. Service is both friendly and superb.

We followed that with crispy fried calamari over frisée, red cat 004fennel and red onion in a chili vinaigrette ( $13) and corn cakes containing shrimp over a celery root salad, drizzled with chili oil ($14).

I’d highly recommend the endive salad and the fried calamari (although that was the evening’s special.

The Grenache/Cabernet “Cal Siscon” 2004, Capcanes (Monstant), $42 – went well with it all.

We did indulge in dessert. A rich and tasty chunky peanut butter ice cream swirl a top puff pastry and dark chocolate mousse, drizzled with clover honey ($9).

    I’m surprised why this twist of fate didn’t happened in advance!
    I bookmarked it.
