When The Redhead first opened, partners Meg, Rob, and Gregg had little more than a dream of serving Southern-inspired fare. At first, their humble bar happened to serve food on Thursday nights exclusively, and even then it was only a prix-fixe meal that Chef Meg Grace cooked all by herself. Despite those small roots, the restaurant soon earned accolades from all over the city, and today The Redhead serves its refreshing take on comfort food seven nights a week.
Here's a sampling of what you can get and what people are saying about it.
- Appetizer: Look around the room, and you'll see most diners dipping their hands into a mason jar for some bacon peanut brittles, which are so good people often take a bag home.
- Entree: What comfort food isn't a little messy? The eatery's Low Country Shrimp, made with Anson Mills grits and andouille sausage, is no exception.
- Side: Roasted jalapeño gives cornbread a nice kick.
- Dessert: The classic strawberry rhubarb crisp gets elevated just a bit with almonds, ginger, and bourbon ice cream.
- Cocktail: Try a grown-up Arnold Palmer, spiked with cognac and mint.
In the Press
- According to the New York Times, "It isn’t exactly like any other downtown restaurant I know — its semi-polished, Southern-inflected pub grub is all its own." Another plus: the chef's "ego-restrained way of preparing familiar, even lowbrow fare with such exacting standards and such sagely chosen grace notes that it takes on an unfamiliar luster."
- New York Magazine called the signature bacon brittle "compulsively edible" and raved about the fried chicken.
- Listen to TimeOut New York and don't "make the mistake of skipping out on the signature Ho Ho dessert, a delicious upmarket facsimile of the Hostess classic featuring a devil’s-food spiral around salted caramel cream."
