Jimmy Bradley

Chef-Owner, The Red Cat

The Author and Chef-Owner of The Red Cat —Jimmy Bradley presides over a neighborhood joint that has become a destination for guests from around the city, and the country. A purveyor of straightforward, occasionally irreverent, food and contagious conviviality, all of it wrapped up in an attitude-free package, Bradley has helped contemporary diners rediscover the intrinsic value of classic Mediterranean cuisine, reinterpreted for a modern American clientele. He and his recipes are regularly featured in The New York Times, Food & Wine, Bon Appétit, Esquire and other food publications, as well as on local and national television programs including Today Show, Top Chef Masters and Martha Stewart. His first cookbook, The Red Cat Cookbook, was published by Clarkson Potter in fall 2006.
