The Fat Radish

From the outside, The Fat Radish seems like yet another hole-in-the-wall restaurant squeezed into New York’s endlessly busy Chinatown neighborhood. But the restaurant may be the reason the age-old cliché saying exists – because this fresh-food locale is one you absolutely shouldn’t judge by its cramped cover. A farm-to-table attitude and brick walls painted over with fresh white paint make The Fat Radish is every foodie’s dream. A peek at their Instagram page visually tells the story of their stance on food, fun, and flavor.

Known for their commitment to fresh ingredients and “clean eats,” The Fat Radish has built a foundation on starters like Celery Root Pot Pie served with Black Garlic and Gruyere Cheese, a Kale Caesar Salad served with Anchovies, Croutons, Bacon, and Eggs, and plates like the Montauk Diver Scallops served with Golden Beet and Sweet Potato Mash with Bok Choi and the Grilled Dutch Morgan Chicken served with Market Spinach, Cornish Pasty and Shallot Jus. Sides like the Roasted Market Brussels Sprouts served with Black Garlic and the Truffled Duck Fat Chips are also great additions. Brunch offerings like the Smoke Salmon Crostini, Red Onion, Capers, Upland Cress and Crème Fraiche and the simple, yet immaculate, Avocado and 7-Grain Toast with Spicy Eggs will suit you well.

Prone to long waits and large parties – the price of popularity in New York City – reservations are encouraged.
