Red Hen Restaurant

We’re a small neighborhood bistro focused on crafting thoughtfully prepared food and drink to you in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

“Although The New York Times calls Red Hen’s menu “American bistro cuisine,” that seems too limiting. Take Cacio e Pepe, for example. You couldn’t get more Italian. That translates to “cheese and pepper” but Deproto adds toasted garlic, prosciutto, and baby spinach to hers, topping the whole thing with a poached egg. “Everything’s better with an egg on it,” she says.
Among other things on the menu, there’s the Portuguese Fisherman’s Stew, which is a full of shrimp, scallops, clams, cod, chorizo, mussels, and potatoes in a saffron tomato broth; there’s roasted Atlantic cod with bacon and shiitake mushrooms; Stonington sea scallops; delightfully lightly fried cod bites; and—here’s the American part—a “Big Fat Steak.”
