We went on a Friday afternoon at about 4:30, and although there was on one parking spot left, we found that the restaurant was not too busy. At the restaurant, there are outside and inside seating, but we were sat outside on a patio right on the edge of the Mystic River. Our waitress was very friendly, and we had known her from other restaurants that were owned by the same owner as Red 36. There were three of us in our group, so we ordered two appetizers between us: clam fritters and salmon chips. The clam fritters were very good and were served with maple syrup and tartar sauce. The salmon chips came as four fried potato slices with shredded salmon on top of each one along with a spicy sauce in top, which were my personal favorite. Very soon afterwards, our entrees came. I had ordered lump crab cakes which came with dauphinoise potato, which was excellent in both taste and presentation. My mother had ordered the arugula BLT salad with prosciutto and burrata cheese, which she said was slightly large, but very delicious. My father had ordered the short rib angus ground beef burger which he also said was very good. We all finished our plates completely! Then came dessert, where we ordered the key lime pie and the blueberry crisp. The key lime pie was served in a jar with the dessert in layers from crushed crackers, the lime filling, then whipped cream on top. We found both the blueberry crisp and the key lime pie to be excellent. All in all, this restaurant was really good, and I am positive we will return again!

This is a brand new place directly on the Mystic River. It has both indoor and outdoor seating, and indoor and outdoor bars. The setting is just gorgeous, and the decor is great.. The menu is just what I like - a lot of apps, salads, burgers, and full course dinners for those looking for a more substantial meal. I went with two friends on the second night they were open and the place was packed. In spite of the crowd, the service was excellent, and the food even better. I'm still dreaming about the Asian Calamari and Clams Casino Flatbread that I had. On my next visit I had the Fish Tacos, and they were very good as well. Can't wait to go back!
