We had been to Redeye Grill more than a few times, but never had the pleasure of sitting outdoors on a beautiful October day.Redeye has been a staple in midtown Manhattan for over 25 years. Located across the street from Carnegie Hall, it is a perfect spot for dinner after an afternoon performance or before an evening one. I only recently discovered that its name is derived from the infamous late night flight linking New York and Los Angeles.
Its colorful art, floor to ceiling columns painted by celebrated artists, along with Red Grooms artwork, it is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
Eight concrete steps are required to reach the patio and main entrance. If you cannot do the steps there is a lift located at the corner of property ( 56th and 7th). It is not very noticeable; look for the “888” sign and you will find it.
The single door entry, small entryway and another door lead to the welcome desk. To the right is the bar and lounge area, requiring two steps up.
The main dining area is large, with tables, banquettes and booths. Depending on where you are seating it can be difficult to navigate.
The patio dining was wonderful. Tables and chairs are well spaced. We were told that, unfortunately, the patio would soon be closing for the season.
The food and service are always great. The lobster roll and crab meat salad we had for lunch were delicious. The lobster roll presentation brought a smile to our faces. Check out our photo! The crab salad definitely needed more crabmeat.
Multi-stall restrooms are located in the rear of the dining room. If you are seated outside they are easy to get to by using the back door. It’s unfortunate that the accessible stall is rather narrow and the sinks are not wheelchair accessible. There are no baby-changing stations.
If you can manage the aforementioned item, Redeye Grill is a good choice.As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.redeyegrill.com, when planning a visit, to help you “know before you go.”
