The Wild Son is the least Meatpacking place in the Meatpacking District. It isn’t big, glitzy, or especially expensive, and it isn’t the sort of place you go to pregame for the Le Bain. We see all of that as a very good thing. Stop by this little restaurant (by the people who opened the Wayland), if you’re in the neighborhood and you need a casual lunch, brunch, or dinner. Think stuff like buckwheat pancakes and egg sandwiches with ingredients like broccoli rabe and shishito peppers. They also do a very decent smoked trout sandwich with bacon.

It is no understatement to say that Catch is the most over-the-top, ridiculous dining operation the Meatpacking District has ever seen. Thankfully though, the service is fantastic, and the food is pretty great as well, despite the absurdity of it all.
Toro NYC is a bigger, louder, more party-time version of the Boston original. Hit it for the scene and a spoonful of uni, ham, and caviar.
Del Posto is an excellent special occasion restaurant, located in a big space in Chelsea. Think of it as a more upscale Babbo, or Daniel with pasta.

The Red Cat
There is a crowd that goes to The Red Cat because it’s a quality local spot with just enough flavor that they can rely on for a consistently good meal and a glass or two of wine. While it is indeed an older crowd, it’s not a stuffy one.
