For more than 15 years Rouge Tomate has been a culinary pioneer in America and Europe, combining health, sustainability, and taste.

Rouge Tomate Chelsea’s cuisine starts with a balance of pristine ingredients. Plants play the most prominent role: Local seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs and greens are complemented by responsibly-raised fish, meat, and poultry. Our goal is to enhance and accentuate these flavors, but always respect the nature of the ingredients we use. It is a combination of both modern technique and artful restraint.

The beverage team offers tasty, complex, exciting wines, spirits, liquors, beers, teas, coffees...any liquid you can dream of drinking. The producers are careful, dedicated, and responsible, supporting an idea of farming that is respectful of the future. They vinify, brew, and distill complex, flavorful ingredients with the fewest additives possible, to encapsulate a real transparency of place, time and culture in a glass of wine or a cup of tea.

The restaurant meets the criteria for three-star SPE® certification, a testament to their commitment to health and sustainability*. Rouge Tomate Chelsea is an unparalleled model for sustainable dining: carefully considerate of what is put on the plate, and forever dedicated to excellent food. We can’t wait to share it with you.

*Because of its affiliation with SPE Development US, inc., Rouge Tomate Chelsea is not an “SPE-certified” restaurant although it fully applies the principles of SPE.
