The Feed first look: Red Gravy

Chef Saul Bolton (Saul, The Vanderbilt) debuts his highly anticipated Southern Italian restaurant in Brooklyn Heights.


Last Friday, Saul Bolton—the Michelin-starred Brooklyn toque behind Saul and the Vanderbilt—unveiled Red Gravy, an exposed brick, 75-seat trattoria. Homemade pasta (including tagliatelle with wild-boar sugo) and whole butchered animals (worked into dishes like braised lamb shoulder with chicory and fennel) form the foundation of Bolton’s seasonal Italian menu. Antipasti, such as a local bass crudo, lean heavily on fish. Sidle up to the copper-trimmed bar for homemade amaro, wines of the lower Boot and cocktails like the rye-and-Cynar-based Whiskey Skiffer. Check out the menu below. 151 Atlantic Ave between Clinton and Henry Sts, Brooklyn Heights (no phone yet)
