About Us

The story of the red paper clip is about trading up from one item to the next, realizing a larger goal than previously achievable. Each trade made results in new possibilities

Our first trade was when we decided to devote ourselves to the hospitality industry to build our skill sets. Those skills made it possible to open our own restaurant. 

Red Paper Clip is an intimate, neighborhood restaurant located on Christopher Street in the West Village. Our menu is influenced by Chef/Owner Kevin Chen's Taiwanese-American heritage, his upbringing in Queens and his time spent traveling and cooking
