Gato, Chef Bobby Flay’s new mediterranean restaurant recently opened in NoHo bringing his spicy bold flavors to mediterranean dishes. The layering of ingredients and flavors are stimulating and adept for spice-lovers who want something leaner than Indian or Mexican cuisine.
I met up with Bobby in the kitchen where he diligently keeps the quality control high at this cool mega-restuarant and comes out to meet his patrons which is an added bonus of the experience.
The name GATO was inspired by a mysterious orange cat that walked through Mr. Flay’s feet on Lafayette Street while he was waiting for a real estate broker to show him the space for the first time.
The menu has a selection of fun little bar bites (highly recommended), and a big range of appetizers and main courses. He also showcases a big vegetable section which seems to be a new trend appearing in new openings. We love that!
– Beef Crudo
– Artichoke with Sea Urchin and Quail Egg
WHAT TO WEAR?
To match the hot and spicy food wear a fun bright colored dress like this affordable body-con dress from Bebe $65 and dress it down if needed with a big boyfriend sweater $85 (All saints) and make it cooler with 1 large earring like this feather and skull earring from Maje $42. So easy to look cute on a normal budget!
