Living in Los Angeles, I see a different restaurant opening up almost every weekend. This last weekend was no exception. As I drove down Melrose
Ave I spotted this amazing structure that immediately caught my eye. It's called Red O
and it boasts a mouth watering Mexican style menu created by Chef Rick Bayless
(a recent Top Chef Masters finalist - one of my favorite TV shows!). Although I find myself in the residential world of interior design, I can't help but get excited by commercial projects like this:
This shot was taken while construction was still underway. It looks much more dramatic in person - especially at night when the lights are angled just right.
The interior is even more exciting than the exterior:
Guests travel through this wonderful "Tequila Tunnel" that displays the restaurants wide array of various tequilas.
The main bar features leather swing-like chairs and bent Walnut circular shelves. As you can see, the space makes quite a transformation from day to night.
The Dining Atrium has a great open feel with 25' ceilings.
I love all the different seating areas available. It would be a great place to hold a dinner party because of the separation of spaces.
I hope to follow-up with a full food report one of these days!!
