Tips for The Red Hen

The Red Hen

Critic Tom Sietsema: Nothing predictable about wine selection. Get: 2011 chablis from Gilbert Picq ($50). For food, get the baby octopus or hand-made pastas. Share the fried artichokes or crostini.

The ricotta crostini with truffle honey & brown sugar butter will change your life.

The Bram Bones was lovely...all 5 times.

This is a piece of heaven. Staff is amazing Chef is amazing. The Rigatoni was so good I ordered a second plate. Suckling pig was to die for and then they just top it off with maple custard dessert.

Try the mezze rigatoni, house-made dry pasta, with fennel sausage ragu made with local pork, toasted fennel seed, pepper and floral fennel pollen. The popular dish is both familiar and unfussy.

Make everyone at your table order something different so you can taste the whole menu! It's amazing!

- 2M Street

Delicious! Everyone should try the rigatoni!

- Christopher Westcott

Intriguing wines at user-friendly prices make this bustling newcomer in Bloomingdale worth crossing town for, but so, too, does the relaxed Italian cooking from Michael Friedman.

Smoked trout crostini, beet salad, baby octopus, warm olives and gnocchi. That's what you should order for two. All splittable and stupid delicious.

The Rigatoni with vodka sauce & Fennel Sausage is fantastic.

Amazing dinner and service. Had the suckling pig sandwich and the custard for dessert. Very creative menu with an open kitchen and rustic look.

- Carolina Revilla

Delicious pasta, helpful staff, cozy space. Topped off with a great wine selection. I hope to come again.

The Rigatoni; Brussel Sprouts were perfect & well balanced. And heirloom apple crumble with vanilla bean ice cream was such a great way to end the meal.

- Hank Rodriguez

Definitely try the grilled octopus. We loved the rigatoni with fennel sausage ragu and the saffron zucca!! The Brussels sprouts were perfect and the maple and brown butter gelato sundae was awesome!

That maple custard, dawg

- Kevin M

"You’ll linger over bowls of pillowy ricotta cavatelli folded with shredded lamb and bacon, or silky, squid-ink paccheri tossed with tender calamari rings and meaty chickpeas." FR

The rotating menu of fresh, seasonal ingredients is incredible. The maple custard with hazelnut crumble is not to be missed.

The Red Hen

Tourist Tip: This lovely neighborhood restaurant is bustling - so make reservations or hustle for bar seats. Order the cacio e pepe, even when not on the menu, and share the chicken "fra diavolo"
