The Red Room – 17499 Ventura Blvd., Encino, CA – March 29, 2011
Last Friday night I was invited to The Red Room which is located in Encino, CA. We had a friend that was visiting us from Tennessee and I’m grateful I was invited as it was a blast to see my friends.
I had never heard of The Red Room but I was open to trying it out. We carpooled and I was glad we did as the parking is not great. It’s a cute restaurant that caters to the wine connoisseur, the wine collection is amazing! I shared a bottle of red wine with my girlfriend, it was the Mossback Pinot Noir 2011..it was such a smooth wine. The cost on the wine was $40 or $11 per glass. I’d highly recommend it!
Now for the food…they promote it as a “Tapas Bar”, but I didn’t feel that it was the “Spanish” flair that usually matches the word “Tapas” and they had full portions for food so if you are going to visit it on your own, know that you can get appetizers, salad, pizza or a main meal.
We ordered 2 different salads…the shaved artichoke salad, with shaved Parmesan and a lemon/olive oil dressing on arugula, the cost of the salad was $12
The second salad was the Kale Chopped Salad with kale, quinoa, toasted almond, Parmesan cheese and a lemon vinaigrette dressing, cost for this salad is $9
I got the pizza with wild mushrooms and brie cheese, $10
I shared my pizza with others as it was a large pizza for just one person. My girlfriend had gotten the salmon dish with I believe was $18, she shared it with someone and they LOVED it, I’m sorry I don’t have great shots but it’s my first of many more reviews coming your way!!!
