Big Night Entertainment Group, the “barons of booty-bumping,” did something right when they opened Red Lantern on sad little Stanhope Street: The place, which could have been nothing more than a slinky excuse to drink too many martinis while feasting on pretty plates, has been lauded for its creative and really quite good Asian fare. And they’re capitalizing on it.
While back we talked about their next big venture, a “first-class and high-quality Asian-themed restaurant and lounge.” Now BRT has it that the team might open a new property even sooner, per a Craigslist post. This one will be on Province Street downtown; apparently it was initially advertised as “GEM” but that might not be its name any longer.
Clearly the deets are still a bit fuzzy, but rest assured that we’ll keep you posted. Wonder if this restaurant will be of the Asian persuasion, too?
