Red's new space has a beautifully laid out bar, sushi bar and restaurant interior. Lots of great energy in the space! Sushi menu is one of the most creative I have seen. Very comprehensive special rolls menu as well as standard roll offerings.

Red has impressed me in the past so when my top-secret chef pal said "Let's go get Sushi," I said, "Have you been to Red?" So this is how we made our way to their new location for lunch the other day. As someone who...More
