    “Flay knows that while some people crave small plates of seared duck liver and beef crudo, others will migrate toward pizza, a comforting cube of eleven-layer potato, and ‘charred beef.’” Read more

    From Ryan Sutton's 1 star review:"The go-to entree is the kale paella ($27), where crusty calasparra rice packs a world of deep mushroom flavor. Pair that with the carrots ($10)." Read more

    The Foursquare tips are spot on -- kale paella, octopus and scrambled eggs as appetizers. The charred beef entre is one of the most delicious things I've had in forever. I'd go back just for that.

    Friendly service great ambiance amazing food. I asked the waiter for Bobby Flay's favorite dishes. My mouth is watering just thinking about them - Crab Risotto & Saffron Linguine with Mussels so good!

    The octopus was by far my favorite and the paella really stood out as well. The wine choosen by their sommelier was excellent. All around great meal, try some different items from the bar section.

    The latest addition to Bobby Flay's empire serves some of the best Mediterranean food we've had in a while. Start off with the lamb sausage pizza, followed by the kale paella & a side of cauliflower.

    Oven roasted shrimp awesome. Don't forget to mop up remaining sauce w/ some extra bread. Tortiglione also great entree, but should either be less eggplant or bit more pasta. Slightly disproportionate.

    Get the simple scramble ($14): whipped eggs with butter & crème fraîche, finished with garlicky romesco sauce, tangy Bûcheron goat cheese and chopped marcona almonds. Read more

    Great new restaurant in New York! Must try dishes: lamb pizza, kale paella and charred beef (pictured). You might even see Bobby Flay while here! We did. Large bar, too.

    Bobby Flay has done a fantastic job with the menu, making Gato one of my top 2 restos of 2014 (along w/ Narcissa). The pork chop is out of this world. Other recos: halibut, garrotxa and potato gratin.

    Coctails are awesome, try "Lorenzo" for a Londonish quality coctail. Mediterranean cuisine for the Americans tho not fancy for a Mediterranean

    White Bean dip, Octopus, Lamb Sausage Pizza, Halibut and Kale & Wild Mushroom Paella. And don't forget the Walnut Brown Butter Cake! Honestly, you can't go wrong with anything here

    My wife and I love the assorted small plates, especially the piquillo pepper filled with raw tuna. We also enjoy the soft shell crab crostini and the kale paella.

    The bar snacks are that good I ordered two rounds: pumpkin arancini, chorizo crepinettes and eggplant with manchego & balsamic. Pair with the Angelo cocktail if you like Rye & Campari.

    Never been a huge fan of Bobby's but Gato delivers. The octopus was amazing as was the crab risotto, the charred carrots, Brussels sprouts and the roasted cauliflower. Still amazed I liked it so much!

    Easily one of the best restaurants in NYC- the paella is phenomenal, the crab toastada melts in your mouth, and don't get me started about the octopus. This place is a must..hats off to Bobby Flay!

    Everything on the menu is amazing. The scrambled eggs and crispy potatoes are a must! You will be full just ordering a bunch of small plates and skipping the entree. The lemon vodka cocktail is 👌🏻

    Amazing roasted octopus! Also had the three small plates: lamb tenderloin and burrata was good. For main we had the rabbit and the orata. They were both perfectly cooked and the sauces were amazing.

    Of the 3 bar snacks we tried, the lamb tenderloin was incredibly flavorsome, the eleven layer potato had great textures but comparatively less flavor and the eggplant was somewhere in between.

    Loved everything we ordered: trio of bar snacks, scrambled eggs with ribbons if cheese folded in, lamb wood-fired pizza, sweet & sour roasted cauliflower, bread pudding! Will go back for the paella!

    By now, you've decided on the Octopus, Paella and Beef (go you!). Make sure you also get some sides - the potatoes are the crispiest most tasty anywhere the Broccolini too. Finish w/the plum tarte

    You have to get the scrambled eggs and the roasted octopus - so so awesome! The paella and the porkchop are delish too. Sit at the bar facing the kitchen so you can see Bobby making your dinner.

    Indeed, the paella is seriously unique and awesome. But I was also blown away by the halibut. The carrots are fine, but I would try a different veggie. Very attentive service.

    Love the octopus here. Try grabbing a table in the front if u can't get a Rez. Bar is lively and bartenders are pretty on point. Great spot to eat at the bar if u can nab a seat.

    Now that the review cycle has passed, critics have agreed that desserts here are excellent — and that includes a classic, southern-inspired peach cake with blueberry gelato. Brown-Butter Peach Cake

    not only was the food great - it was a confusingly good value. 3 of the bar selections, 3 apps (octopus, eggs, crab risotto), 3 glasses of wine, 2 of sherry & a dessert: $110. And we were full!

    The kale paella was phenomenal! Comes with a runny egg over crispy rice, the egg cooks after u stir it. Get the eggplant vegetable dish and the charred carrots. The salmon item could have been better.

    Can't describe how delicious the roasted cauliflower in agro dolce sauce is, same for the scrambled eggs toast w/romesco and boucheron cheese - based on a dish at Barcelona's Paco Meralgo.

    Scrambled eggs,charred beef and the walnut brown butter cake are a must. Cocktails are pretty good too. Kale and wild mushroom paella was too salty.

    I love this place. It's great for dates there are amazing small plates (some of which are better than tapas I've had in Spain). If I were rich I'd eat here ALL the time.

    Bobby Flay is on top of his game in his new Mediterranean place!; Highlights: one of best octopus ever!, charred carrots, roasted cauliflower, lamb sausage pizza with mint, mushroom and kale paella

    Best scrambled eggs, octopus, and eggplant I've ever had. We saw Bobby Flay the night we were there. One of my top 5 in NYC.

    The braised octopus will make you reconsider ever having octopus anywhere else. It is beyond tasty and tender! And then there's the kale salad. That's simply a must have.

    The scrambled egg appetizer was out of this world - sort of small though to split between any more than two people. The artichoke heart was also amazing. The paella wasn't as good as I expected.

    Entrees to go for: seafood risotto and the steak. Skip the small bar plates and go for medium size appetizers, the octopus comes to mind. Great place to bring a date.

    Obsessed with the paella... The octopus is awesome too! The bread boudin for dessert, along with the hazelnut one... 👌🏼

    I don't eat sea food .but that octopus is wonderful . I personally like sweet and sour. Rabbit is the best if you like sweet and sour too. Salty ham+black currant =❤️

    Agree with the others who recommended the scrambled eggs and octopus - both are fantastic! Also loved the duck confit!

    The small plates outshine the entrées at Gato. Opt for the Eggplant with Balsamic and Manchego Cheese as well as the Crab Risotto. Desserts here are not their strong point.

    Roasted Octopus and Kale Paella are a must! Also fun to get a few items from the bar list, specifically the chorizo with pickled brussels sprouts

    The eggplant starter is awesome, as is the duck confit. Make sure to finish with the apple tarte tatin.

    Charred Beef, porterhouse pork chop, baked octopus, gato salad all fabulous. Wines by the glass excellent. Busy, casual but quality of food top notch

    Whatever you get, also get the kale paella. Tables are hard to come by so snag bar seats early and often, and order from the full menu.

    The fried oysters tapa was astounding—this is coming from someone who grew up in coastal NC with a deep uncompromising love for steamed or raw oysters.

    Apps and bar snacks pack a flavor punch that entrees don't: scrambled eggs & roasted octopus blew my mind!
