Need a Saturday night spark but too tired and jaded from the City’s nightlife and its rowdy followers? Welcome to Catch. Located in the heart of the Meatpacking District, this seafood tower is contemporary, refreshing and raw. It’s obvious that the menu was constructed with Poseidon’s blessing.
The tri-level 14,000 square foot restaurant will have you Catch-ing for more. First level features a raw bar with towers of fresh shellfish and seafood tapas while the floor above it offers kitchen side chefs-eye view tables. But what is it about this seafood joint that makes it acceptable in the Meatpacking District? It’s not the dining floors, but the dance floor. The third level glass penthouse features music and accommodates late night boogie revelers.
Chef Hung Huynh is excited to bring seafood to the neighborhood. The menu will highlight signature dishes like seared scallops with tamarind brown butter and the famous white chocolate cauliflower puree that helped Huynh win the Top Chef crown in 2007. Not interested in purees? Than try the Dungeness Crab Tagliatelle with Flying Fish Roe and make sure to leave room for dessert. One of Huynh’s favorite menu items is a deconstructed tiramisu with mascarpone ice cream and espresso granite.The restaurant boasts two open kitchens and takes flavors from all over the world – the Mediterranean, Asia, Europe, South America.
