THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Redwood Grill Restaurant Review

: On our first visit, we were alarmed by the Bleu salad, a spinach-based attempt at whimsy with blue cheese, blueberries and blueberry vinaigrette. Years have passed and that freaky blue salad is still on the menu. Frankly, we’re not sure why. Perhaps it’s a personal favorite of Ethel Fisher and Manfred Jachmick, who run the Redwood and the Galleria area Post Oak Grill. In general, their white-tablecloth restaurants stick with tried-and-true foods and put a premium on catering to the emotional needs of corporate types. The dining room, with rich dark woods, brass accents and not-too-bright not-romantic lighting says money and business, and patrons can count on a menu free of newfangled foods. A talented kitchen staff is capable of turning out intriguing originals, but in the main the restaurant is as correct and tasteful as Brooks Brothers. For the special needs of Houston executives, those in the oil business, Redwood offers a gooey down-home bread pudding, slightly upscale with croissant instead of white bread.
