Red Velvet Restaurant & Lounge, lauded by the Reporter for its bustling late-night atmosphere, encompasses a menu of modern American dishes infused with an Italian twist. Small plates heaped with baked goat cheese and toast points ($6) lead the vanguard, prepping maws to mow down poorly fortified plates of seafood linguine tossed in a spicy marinara ($17). Chefs dust chicken or eggplant parmesan in garlic-laced herbs and drizzle a house marinara across bubbly layers of mozzarella and Parmesan ($12). A 10-ounce grilled new york strip steak, embellished with a gorgonzola crust and served with seasoned potato wedges ($21), tames growling bellies but merely appeases carnivorous houseplants.
The crimson-hued eatery transforms into a dancing hotspot after hours as multicolored lights double-dutch between undulating crowds. Patrons can sip brews and specialty drinks while a DJ unleashes thumping beats until 2 a.m. Tuesday–Saturday, and the kitchen stays open late on Friday and Saturday.
