Red in Red Bank

It was my anniversary yesterday. Our restaurant of choice is ALWAYS Nicholas, but they are closed Mondays.
I decided to try Red.
We were 1/2 hour late for our reservation and when I called I was told "No Problem" and it was fine- the restaurant/bar was not full at all.

Over all, I would have to say it was just OK. There was a business meeting upstairs. Our waitress had to serve upstairs as well, so she was constantly running up and down the stairs. We were never told the specials-I only heard them as another waitress was explaining them to another table after we had already ordered.

My husband had the Red salad and I had the Shrimp, Lobster Lettuce wraps. I must say they should be called a black bean wrap, becuase that was the main ingredient. In fairness, it was a lovely mix of flavors.

For our main dish, I had the short ribs and my huband had the shrimp pasta. As others have mentioned, the serving sizes are large and we took quite a bit home with us. Both dishes were OK-nice and we took home the leftovers,
I am glad I tried it, but probably not returning.
Maybe next year we will head west and scope out Princeton's finest!
