Red Lantern Opens Tonight


We shared their menus with you a few weeks ago, and now we hear that pan-Asian Red Lantern will open its doors tonight at 4 p.m. We’re expecting extreme sleekness at the Stanhope Street swankery; the place was designed by Peter Niemetz (who recently completed Foundry on Elm) and is helmed by the team behind SHRINE Asian Kitchen Lounge and Nightclub at MGM Grand at Foxwoods; The Scorpion Bar and High Rollers Luxury Lanes and Lounge at Foxwoods Resort Casino. As for the food, prepare for a “culinary voyage” enhanced by wok stations, a wood-fired grill, and a sushi bar, presided over by an “oversized Buddha surrounded by an army of acupuncture statues.”
