It’s been a while since we’ve done a restaurant review on our blog, but last week I finally got a chance to go to Catch in the Meatpacking District and wanted to share my experience. Since it opened last fall, I heard nothing but great reviews from seafood lovers and fans of its executive chef Hung Huynh of Top Chef.
The three-level restaurant is semi-hidden located on W. 13th St. and 9th. With a chic ambiance, it’s a perfect place to meet after work for drinks and appetizers. We tried the macaroni lobster & cream, crunchy rice cakes (with tuna tartare) and crispy shrimp in a spicy mayo. All delicious, particularly the macaroni lobster & cream that comes in a sizzling pan.
For dessert we tried the peanut butter souffle with a peanut butter popsicles, fresh baked cookie bucket and chocolate brownie cake. Need I say more? Plus if you stay till sunset, there’s a rooftop lounge with panoramic views of Meatpacking that opens at 9 p.m.
