Fried chicken, shrimp & grits, and a buttery one-eyed caesar salad should be more than sufficient to lure one to Redhead, the East Village newcomer reviewed this week by our own Ed Levine. But should you need another reason, let me kindly throw in a mention of their devilish chocolate-oat cookie, presented to each diner upon departure. This very satisfying five-bite cookie has a touch of salt, and gains added crunch from little bits of oats. The dark chocolate that slips into every bite appears not in the form of chips, but in shards of broken discs layered in a manner somewhat reminiscent of City Bakery. After an indulgent meal at Redhead, the cookie is best saved for the next day, but it would be completely understandable if you couldn't resist devouring it whole on the subway ride home.
