New York City-Lower West Manhattan
May 11, 2018
The kind of contemporary exposed brick and wood interior found at Catch NYC could really only be achieved in one of the landmark buildings that line Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. In-keeping with the converted warehouse theme, Catch features signature metal light fixtures, an open plan dining room, long, communal marble tabletops and sleek curved booths that are perfect for sinking into before sinking your teeth into some delicious seafood creations. Fresh fish and seafood is the order of the day at Catch, which pairs raw delicacies like oysters, ceviche and sushi with decadent hot entrees such as grilled octopus, scallop gnocchi and sautéed snapper with lobster mash. Brunch at the weekend is also fish-focused, but with a few familiar staples thrown in for good measure – think Eggs Benedict, beef sliders and blueberry pancakes. If you still have room for dessert, the s’mores pizza and apple pie donut are not to be sniffed at. As for the drinks, Catch offers up some refreshing cocktails with suitably quirky names; the Seedless Suzy mixes vodka and fresh watermelon with basil and lemon, while the aptly aquatic themed Nemo muddles white rum, fruit liqueur, mint, lime and sparkling wine (surely the perfect accompaniment to salty fresh seafood). There’s an eclectic mix of wines and several champagnes, but most interesting is the sake selection which matches the Japanese-inspired raw bar selection to a tee.
