I have no words. Ok, Yes I do. I have a lot of things to say but I am so excited about this new concept here at Kamm's Corners in Cleveland, that I can barely speak. Partly because I cannot stop eating but mostly because I am in awe of what the Two Bucks Ownership Group has done. A beautiful and complete remodel of the former Red Lantern, all while preserving the history and even retaining some of the staff members too! Check out what's happening here at Red Lantern Kitchen and Bar.
First things first. Let's check out the Red Lantern before the renovations. Nostalgia was a word that kept popping up during my conversation with one of the owners Cory Rowland. He felt it was important to keep the name because of its long lasting history and reputation in the neighborhood. They've kept certain menu items like the fish fry and even held onto the sign so they can display the letters R-E-D in the restaurant. The Two Bucks Ownership Group even donated the artwork from the old Red Lantern back to the artists family.
Now, the finished product. It's absolutely stunning!
I'm definitely digging the trendiness of the restaurant because it's unlike any other location in the area. It is truly a much needed breath of fresh air. Finally, a place I can relax, have a meeting, enjoy a meal with friends, loosen up after dark and the best part.........bring my family because they have a great kids menu! All fresh ingredients I might add!
Speaking of food, This is a perfect time to tell you about the "deal sealers". That's what I call them anyway. The creative and absolutely delicious dishes Executive Chef's Chris McCarthy (previous Executive Chef at Bricco downtown) and Brian McNeff (Executive Chef at Two Bucks) prepare are what keep me coming back for more. I always leave not only feeling full and happy, but inspired. Check out some of my favorite dishes, drinks and desserts below.
ShalaMedia's Deal Sealers!
|My 10oz USDA Certified Angus Beef Strip Steak was a delightful take on a steak.|
Topped with crumbled goat cheese and served with these crispy on the
outside but so soft on the inside smash fried Yukon Gold potatoes and bacon brussles.
|Ohio City Pasta’s Red Bliss and Wisconsin Cheddar Pierogis served|
with pickled red onion and chive crème. I also enjoyed a barrel aged cocktail
called the Honey Vanilla Bean Side Car and my "usual" the American Mule.
|The Min-Tea! That's a simple syrup and mint|
infused whiskey ball (so cool) in the bourbon of your choice!
|The Peach Old Fashion which is another tasty barrel aged cocktail. |
Jameson Irish Whiskey aged with sweet vermouth and peach bitters.
|The Red Lantern Mussels are fresh mussels steamed in a white wine broth |
with shaved Fennel, hot sausage, and grilled crostini.
|The Black & Blue Burger is Cajun dusted and char-grilled with melted blue cheese, caramelized onions and arugula. This burger is only $5 during happy hour! Not even kidding!|
|The 5 Spice Salmon is a 7oz. pan seared fillet over sticky rice with tempura|
broccolini, orange segments, and citrus honey glaze. A seafood lovers dream.
|Hand-crafted Adult Milkshakes YUM! Pictured here are:|
The Kamms Sham, Fire Ballz and Cookie Monster.
