Red Cat Puts Bacon Tempura Back on the Menu. Yes, Fried Bacon.

Although it has long been a favorite of Ted Allen’s, the Red Cat’s bacon tempura, originally created by chef Bill McDaniel on a whim, hasn’t been on the menu in a couple of years. But after it appeared on “The Best Thing I Ever Ate” and viewers started asking after it, the restaurant decided to bring it back a couple of weeks ago. We wouldn’t be surprised if the restaurant’s tweet about the dish, which sells for $10, snowballs into a reservations rush, so get there while you can.
