Go Fish
A Tri-Level Seafood Tower in the MPD

Not to get all Inception on you, but today we bring word of a seafood tower... that you’ll eat inside a tower of seafood.

And if you want to see how far down this rabbit hole goes, make your way to the Meatpacking District immediately.

Introducing Catch, a splashy MPD suite of seaworthy delights that’s stacked three floors high and captained by a Top Chef titleholder, now open for private events and soon for dinner and dancing.

The last time you saw Hung Huynh, he was competing on season 3 of Top Chef like a champ. The next time you’ll see Hung Huynh, he’ll be plating your Dungeness Crab Tagliatelle with Flying Fish Roe like a champ. It’s sort of a natural progression.

You’ll come to this tri-level, timber-meets-brick palace of fish when you’re looking for a big, brash restaurant to give your group of ne’er-do-wells a Saturday night spark (or a sampling of lobster mash).

Start things off at the first-level raw bar, but settle in at the upstairs kitchenside chef’s table for some salmon belly crudo and wasabi-rubbed octopus carpaccio.

After successfully navigating the rest of the Mediterranean/Asian shared plates, you’ll want to conclude all proceedings in the glass penthouse on the roof. Here you’ll find a lounge-like space with reflective gold brick, leather banquettes and a bit of dancing.

Remember, wait 30 minutes after eating before doing the worm.
