Editorial Review of Redder

Something about Redder makes you want to order a martini. I'm not sure if it's the funky lounge music, the dim (sort of reddish) lighting or the modern Art Deco-like decor, but I found myself craving a martini or two, and the signature Reddertini, made with pomegranate vodka and juice, came highly recommended. When I found myself needing another, the friendly staff was nice enough to offer some tasty suggestions. And though I remained lost in a haze of martinis, my friends took full advantage of Redder's decent wine selection ($6-$13 a glass), as well as its 35-brew-long beer list.

Joe DiVenere's revamped take on former occupant Red Tomato is just as tempting a spot for eats, with its smoke-free environment and fairly expansive menu. The gourmet-looking entrees include a wide selection of burgers, sandwiches and "big salads" (try the chicken Waldorf, tossed with spinach, grapes, apples and walnuts). There are also quite a few appetizers, including crab cakes and mini blue cheese burgers, and even a unique selection of snacks: sweet and spicy pecans, pretzel rods with mustard and garlic dill pickles on a stick.

Sadly, our night of wine, martinis and gourmet-styled food ended with a hefty bill (those seemingly innocent Reddertinis came to $8.50 a pop) and a sinking feeling that we consumed way too much food and drink.

Average cost: $21-$30
