Red Lantern Restaurant Review: Big Night Entertainment Group has designed a concept unique in Boston. Asian influenced décor includes hundreds of red lanterns hung from the ceiling and strung by seashells from Vietnamese beaches. There is a 20-foot door that leads to a private bar area while the main dining room has a sushi counter, wok station and open kitchen. Start with a yin (made with rum) or yang (filled with vodka) scorpion bowl (designed for four but good enough for two). If you like a little heat, don’t miss the spicy lettuce wraps or the spicy tuna roll. Specials may include hot rock cook-your-own beef and salmon as well as a compressed melon salad. For entrées, we suggest the tender Mongolian skirt steak and massive bowl of chicken lo mein. Sweet endings include banana tempura, tart berry crème brûlée and a rich chocolate lantern cake.
