Tom Colicchio's little darling's restaurant is NOW OPEN
Holycrap.com, it’s HERE! Hung Huynh, the winner of Top Chef Season 3, just made his restaurant debut, Catch, in the Meatpacking District. Hung coupled with the EMM Group (the team behind Tenjune, Abe and Arthurs, and Meatpacking kings) to open Catch. Previously, Hung was the executive chef at Anja Bar, which is right down the street from his new stomping grounds.
Per Eater NY re: Catch: “The focus here is seafood, and in addition to sushi and oysters, the menu features a number of shareable small plates of things like toro tartare, ceviche, raw tuna with rice cakes, scallop dumplings, and clams “oreganata.” For entrees, there are a handful of whole fish dishes, plus steaks, and a crispy chicken. The space features two floors of dining, a raw bar, a cocktail bar, and an enclosed rooftop lounge.”

As a Top Chef junkie, Hung is my favorite chef to hit the show, and I am looking forward to giving Catch a try. Hopefully this trendy restaurant has substance as other reviewers have promised, so I have the opportunity. Stay tuned.
