The Red Cat feels like a real neighborhood joint—the decor has a funky, homemade feel to it, with its hanging vintage lamps and barn walls—but the food tastes world-class. From beginning to end, chef Jimmy Bradley’s menu is inspired. Grilled double pork chops are served with a black olive-and-roast cauliflower puree, while crispy sautéed skate wing is accompanied by sweet-and-sour eggplant. Get in line behind the loyal local following for a thrilling Chelsea dining experience.
