As an avid Top Chef fan, I’m always excited when I have the opportunity to sample one of the contestant’s food in real life right here in New York City. Hung Huynh and his speedy chicken-chopping ways won season three and he recently opened a restaurant, Catch, in the way-past-expired Meatpacking District. What should have been a fun New Year’s Eve dinner with hopefully delicious food turned out more frustration with bungling service and gimmicky seafood.
I should have listened to my inner foodie (who is usually quite vocal) and avoided the MPD entirely. Lesson learned.
You can find my Yelp review, along with other dissatisfied diner’s thoughts, here.
