Now open, award-winning, New York restaurant and celebrity haunt RedFarm, brings playful contemporary Chinese cuisine and supercharged dim-sum to London’s Covent Garden. With dim-sum extraordinaire Chef Joe Ng and Chinese culinary expert and highly respected restaurateur Ed Schoenfeld at the helm, this is RedFarm’s much-awaited first venture outside Manhattan.
Perennially the top-rated Chinese brand in the US, RedFarm is known for its finely crafted and playful presentations, featuring figurative dim-sum and dishes made from thoughtfully selected seasonal and local ingredients. This refreshing attitude is prevalent throughout the entire ethos of the brand, from the welcoming staff, to the ‘old Skool’ music and killer cocktails, complimenting simply delicious food. Hip downtown vibes from the Village have arrived in London.
Joe’s menu takes a clean, fresh approach to Chinese food and will offer clever dim-sum preparations, small plates, and his remarkably succulent grilled and marinated meats. Small plates include Joe’s signature, Spicy Crispy Beef, (£8) Vegetable Spring Rolls in the shape of a flower (£8) and their famous Pastrami Egg Roll (£9); there is a wide selection of handmade, delicious dumplings which include Pac Man Shrimp Dumplings (£12) - a parade of colourful dumplings that look just like the iconic game and classic Pork & Crab Soup Dumplings (£8) - each of which has its own candy coloured straw for sipping the deeply flavoured broth inside. Mains include Marinated & Grilled Dingley Dell Pork Chop with Basil & Lemongrass (£24), Shrimp-Stuffed Crispy Chicken (£28) and Chinese Broccoli and Fresh Shiitake mushrooms (£10).
Although a non-reservation restaurant, customers are encouraged to call or email in advance of their desired booking to be added to a list to avoid queuing outside. Feel free to call 30 mins before your desired time for an update. It is where RedFarm’s hospitality begins.
RedFarm has two bars. The one on the ground floor will serve an exclusive range of wines, craft beers and an array of interesting cocktails, including five signature cocktails from New York. The second bar, discreetly hidden above the dining areas is the fun and intimate mixology bar named Toots n Hoots. Featuring the imaginative and delicious cocktails of famed NY mixologist Shawn Chen, and an accompanying menu of RedFarm bar snacks, Toots n Hoots gets its playful name from a pair of photos of 2 owls with intense yellow eyes, whose penetrating stare is the first thing one sees upon entering the space. Toots n Hoots and RedFarm are each available for private events.
