lots of colleagues like the red house, and it's kind of a standard for dinners with visiting speakers and such, but i find it very average and too expensive for that. the food never tastes better than and often worse than what i cook at home, and i'm just a good cook, nothing more. the wine list is uninspired. the space is also uninspiring and somewhat cramped.
even though they're supposedly downmarket from the red house, i'd rather go to something simple and loud like russell house tavern or even grafton street.
