My friends and I finally arrived at the restaurant……..the RED CAT……..one of the fun places taking part in “RESTAURANT WEEK“, NYC Winter 2013.

P1480971

HASH……….eggs not too runny……..every morsel was devoured.

P1480972

Gigantic butter beans………mushrooms and chicken.  Very good…..but veal would have been a better meat choice.

TROUT………..with tail attached…….perfectly cooked.

P1480977

Decided on two galleries to visit after lunch.

P1480980

Chocolate tart……… delicious…….but slightly over whelmed by a peanut butter moose.  But I ate every morsel.  A dollop of whipped cream would have been a welcome relief.

P1480986

The room is uniquely pleasant……..music way too loud…….conversation level…..could hardly hear my lunch companions.

P1480990

THE RED CAT…….. Will I try it again?   Yes.  But will sit up front by the window where the noise level is bearable.
