Red Rooster in New York City

Show Map
This is the new restaurant of Marcus Samuelsson, originally from Ethiopia with adoptive Swedish parents. The cuisine is a very interesting and delicious mix of different influences, with nods to traditional soul food, classic Swedish fare, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, among others. Tables can be hard to come by without a reservation, and you might or might not get a friendly hostess, but the restaurant by itself is reason enough to take the trip uptown.
