Opening in 2011, RED offers both indoor and outdoor seating. The interior is eclectic and modern with red accents throughout. For lunch, there is a small patio off the dining room, perfect when the weather is nice. There is also a beautiful courtyard that is open for dinner. Both the patio and courtyard are dog-friendly.

To start your meal, the Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice or the Brussels Sprout Petals are our top two picks from the”Plates to Share.” Other shared plate options include Edamame, Grilled Shishito Peppers and Wagyu Tartare.


For entrees, RED offers both sashimi and sushi rolls as well as Ramen, Salmon and Steak. Their list of sushi rolls is impressive with a long list of Signature rolls, Traditional rolls and Seasonal rolls. There are also vegan rolls, cooked rolls and riceless rolls. There is really something for everyone at RED.
