Rouge Tomate

OPENED1168 DAYS AGO

Rouge Tomate, newly re-opened, is one of the best places to to eat in Manhattan’s West Side

The Michelin-starred, vegetable-focused restaurant, Rouge Tomate, that closed in 2014, has re-opened in a new space in Chelsea. The restaurant was originally operating in the Upper East Side before it closed in August 2014 due to financial reasons. The new spot, housed in a more rustic 19th century carriage house on West 18th Street is less formal than the original and aims to feel more like a wine bar.

The restaurant serves dishes made from local fruit and vegetables, as well as “responsibly raised” meats.

Executive Chef Andy Bennett heads up the kitchen with a focus on healthy but fun offerings with meat playing a small role next to the vegetables which make up the bulk of the menu. Bennett dishes up items like an Amberjack Crudo (with pineapple green Thai consommé) a vegan Miso-Glazed Zucchini (with quinoa, baby bok choy and smoked onion broth) and Ling Cod (with fennel, clams and gnocchi).

The drinks menu includes locally sourced wine and beer, as well as classic cocktails like a Negroni or Bloody Mary. The real focus, of course, will be on the vegetable-focused cocktails that are featured on the menu. Inventive health-focused libations include a Kale cocktail (with kale cucumber, ginger beer and silver tequila) and a Chamomile cocktail (with strawberry syrup, chamomile tea, lemon, club soda and jasmine-infused gin).

If cocktails aren’t your thing, the wine list boasts over 1,600 different varieties to choose from.

The new location of Rouge Tomate will be a little over half the size of its original location (down to 155 from 284). The space is light and inviting with light hardwood floors and cream chairs with splashes of tomato-red on feature walls and drapes.

Currently they are only open for dinner, with brunch and lunch coming soon.
