Farm style Chinese anyone?

Does that even sound right?

Well, at Red Farm in the West Village, Ed Schoenfeld and chef Joe Ng ( Chef) are packing it in at this farmhouse styled Asian accented dim sum spot.

Using high quality ingredients and green market produce, Ng masterfully creates riffs on traditional dim sum and other Asian inflected dishes. All their produce is locally sourced. “At the very least we shop at Chelsea Market”, our super friendly waiter told us.

The appetizers are simply superb and the plating is really cleverly whimsical. Just try the “Pac Man dumplings” or the Mushroom spring rolls.

Some combinations work really well like the “kung pao” dumplings and others lack clarity and end up like mush on a plate, like the grilled vegetable salad. Stick with the starters and dim sum menu – there is enough really good stuff in there to fill you up.

Don’t go expecting authentic Chinese food at Red Farm – that’s not what it’s about. I’m not sure what exactly it is about but all I do know is that the meal we had was good enough to keep me coming back for more.
