WHERE TO EAT | Red O Restaurant, 8155 Melrose Avenue. Red O features menus designed by the renowned chef responsible for changing the image of Mexican food in America, Chef Rick Bayless. Red O cuisine is based on strictly slow cooked Mexican dishes with a Californian-style influence. Aside from the indulgent dishes the décor will be sure to keep your eyes occupied while awaiting your meal. It’s hard to miss the 14-foot communal table made of solid walnut and bronze that sits in the main dining room alongside a bar surrounded by handmade leather swings – and yes, guests can freely swing on these while they sip on their tequila, win win. The ambiance, food, and company creates the ultimate dining experience.
WHAT TO EAT | Start off with the Spicy baja yellowtail ceviche which is spicy Serrano chile, lime, red onion, avocado and cilantro oil. Next, the Wood-Grilled Tacos al Carbon with choice of three marinated grilled fillings, Shrimp, Skirt steak, Ahi tuna or Mary’s chicken. Save room for the made-to-order churros which are golden-crunchy outside and creamy inside served with warm chocolate-Kahlúa dipping sauce.
