The people Red attracted, they were the inspiration. The patrons of a wine boutique turned out to be people who were open to the finer experiences. What a pleasure to fulfill their interests in fine food, good company and quality service. In rising to those requirements we found Red had become a restaurant, unique in its focus on the pleasure of an evening. Wine was the starting point. Beyond the snobbery that once surrounded wine in America, Red let’s you explore, enjoy and fulfill your interest, your own way, using a serving instrument that’s unique to our region. Please consider this your own invitation to join us for an evening soon.
