The Fat Radish
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
With its flattering lighting and model-friendly menu, the Fat Radish is catnip for downtown dandies and other denizens of the fashion flock. But while the sceney restaurant—the brick-and-mortar debut of Silkstone catering—draws the same crowd as the stylish parties its owners have nourished since 2008, the Anglo-leaning cooking is short on substance. Conscientious salads and appetizers like an earthy celery-root potpie reminded us of dinner-party fare. Even the more exciting entrées, such as monkfish vindaloo, taste like home-cooking improv—all sweet and no heat, curried fish neutered for timid palates. As a healthy alternative to most restaurant cooking, the food overall isn’t really that bad. But with serious pricing, it probably ought to be better.
