This Flatiron gem offers seasonal, New American fare from executive chef David Fisher, who's put in time in such Michelin-starred restaurants as Jean-Georges, Aquavit and Aldea.

From an open kitchen overlooking the 70-seat dining room—a moody, brick-walled stretch divided into a front bar area fitted with leather booths and metal trellis archways, and a back dining room warmed with a stone fireplace—Fisher deploys starters like tomato-braised octopus with cannellini beans ($18), and delicata squash agnolotti with lemony shrimp and firey chiles ($14). Robust mains include a juicy hanger steak accompanied by earthy rutabagas ($28), and a slow cooked leg of duck glazed accented with sweet plums ($29).

Photos and words cannot do this restaurant justice, you must experience it for yourself.  The restaurant exhibits extraordinary décor with classic New York ironwork combined with a European flair.  Gather in front with friends at the bar or at one of the banquets or reserve a romantic table for two in the rear dining room near the fireplace.


The dishes are all prepared freshly on site with delectable flavors.  Savoring the Delicata Squash Agnolotti appetizer with smoked butter, chili, shrimp and lemon, the cod with leeks, cauliflower and lobster sauce and the s’mores dessert complete with homemade marshmallows definitely will ensure a return trip for me!

Finding a place for dinner in this part of town can be a challenge. If you're like me, you're trying to pick a place that's good, but not "burn half my paycheck at Gramercy Tavern/ABC Kitchen". Kat & Theo is a solid solution to this conundrum. 


The menu skews Mediterranean, but it's tough to define it to just one category. On my visit, all three of us ordered a fish entree, and weren't disappointed by any. The skate was definitely more decedent than you'd usually see with such a delicate white fish, but delicious nonetheless.


When I see Brussels sprouts on a menu, I order them no matter what. The ones at Kat & Theo were not disappointing. And because we #dgaf, my friends and I ordered two desserts-the strawberry and the cherry. Both were...heavenly.


Knocking off a star though for the portion to price ratio. Yes I probably sounds like a Neanderthal, but I felt like there could have been more on the plate considering how much we paid for our meals. Delicious and beautifully presented, yes. Proportionately priced, not so much.
