Redd Wood Food Picks:
Seasonal Bellini – citrus sorbet, prosecco ($10) was a nice start on such an hot summers day.
Warm olives ($5) were actually hot and plentiful. A must for olive fans.
romaine, anchovy, lemon, garlic, crouton. ($11) looked beautiful, and tasted even better. Fresh, balanced, cutting-edge.
Chilled corn soup, basil pesto ($9) an excellent summer soup. Thick but not too creamy. Robust corn flavor.
Bucatini, tomato, guanciale, black pepper. ($15) was a thick egg-less spaghetti noodle style dish with strong flavors that were almost a tad bit salty.
Pappardelle, rabbit, savoy cabbage, parmesan. ($18) is there reference pasta. Freshly made, excellent noodles along with a stellar ragu. Flour and water beware!
Pizza – prosciutto, arugula, parmesan, black pepper. ($14) had an excellent crust, but a slightly soft center. Ingredients were top notch and the charring not excessive.
