DC Restaurant Week- Red Sage

Willow | Nov 13, 200102:37 PM     1

In celebration of restaurant week, some friends and I went to dinner at Red Sage Monday night. I’ve driven past Red Sage many times in the past, and was anxious to try it out. Needless to say, it was an odd experience. The upstairs, where customers first enter the restaurant, is known as the Red Sage Café. The Café has a full bar, and serves Tex-Mex fare using fresh fish and veggies. Naively, I assumed that the restaurant downstairs, which is taking part in restaurant week, would simply serve more expensive versions of the dishes served upstairs in the Café. I envisioned spicy salmon dishes, etc. I was wrong. While the dinner we were served was good, gnocchi with mushrooms and peas in a cream sauce, it was completely incongruous with the atmosphere. Like the Café, the downstairs is decorated with a south-of-the-boarder theme. However, the items on the menu hardly matched the décor. I may have well been eating at Butterfield 9 or aTenPenh. If I go again, I’ll stick to the less expensive Café upstairs.
