Red, the Steakhouse

From the first instance you walk through the door, you’ll feel “at home” at Red, the Steakhouse. Known as a “contemporary” steakhouse, Red’s ambiance is a mix between a men’s club and an upscale restaurant. What’s even better than its ambiance is its service. The servers are kind, attentive, and provide you with specialized attention to cater to your every need. The menu offers an array of options: Starters encompass steak tartare, calamari, steamed mussels, and shrimp cocktail. Try the trio of tapered hot green peppers stuffed with sweet Italian sausage in bright, zesty, onion-flecked red sauce. Entrées include veal or pork chops, New Zealand rack of lamb, Bell & Evans double chicken breast, and seafood dishes such as tuna, Atlantic salmon, king crab legs, and Maine lobster. There are pastas, too, such as two dozen tender, saline clams with perfectly cooked linguine; but our advice is stick to the steaks. The best part? The bar at Red, the Steakhouse offers more than 500 different types of wine!
