Red Star Tavern & Roast House Restaurant Review

: Hotel Monaco is in an historic building updated to satisfy contemporary sensibilities. Its companion restaurant follows the same theme, offering straightforward yet creative American cuisine. The focus on hefty meats brings roast venison, rib-eye, chicken cooked under a brick, pork shoulder and a burger, but there’s also more inventive fare such as grilled octopus and black cod in a cilantro sauce. Vegetarians have a few hearty options, too, a favorite being smoked kale with red quinoa and tofu. The bar has special menus for both Scotch and bourbon and does a brisk after-work and happy hour business with a full range of libations and bar snacks ranging from yogurt-marinated lamb skewers to french fry nachos. Breakfast may be light, perhaps house-made granola, or more substantial with pancakes, waffles, french toast and omelets. At brunch one will find salads, burgers, and chicken breast paired with horseradish aïoli. Red Star boasts a surprisingly extensive children's menu as well as a child-pleasing s'mores for dessert.
