Michael Jordan and Patrick Ewing Dine at Mark Birnbaum's Catch

When Mark Birnbaum and the EMM Group opened Catch on October 1, 2011, they never could have image who would walk in two years later on April 19th - New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing and Chicago Bull Michael Jordan. The two superstars stopped down in the Meatpacking District to enjoy the fine ambiance and food of Catch.

Who would have thought that the two athletes would have casually strolled in on this Friday night in April.

Catch Restaurant

There we no ill feelings as Mark Birnbaum, who was born and raised in New York City catered to the Bulls hall-of-famer. Hosting two of the NBA's most valuable players and some of basketballs most iconic personalities was a pleasure in itself. Catch has come a long way in the less than two years that it has been open, credit Mark Birnbaum and EMM Group's tenacity and work ethic. 

For those not familiar with Catch, the restaurant builds upon its strong culinary foundation, as Chefs Huynh and EMM Group shift the focus to seafood with dishes like Crispy Whole Red Snapper for two with Oyster Mushrooms, Peppers and Chili-Garlic Sauce, Dungeness Crab Tagliatelli with Flying Fish Roe & Scallion Tomato Sauce, Crab & Chorizo Stuffed Calamari with Chickpeas, Piquillo Peppers, Mint & Chili-Lime, and an array of cold carpaccios including Salmon Belly Crudo with Watercress, Sweet and Sour Onions, Yuzu & Garlic Crumble.
