Martinis at Red the Steakhouse

We like our 'tinis the way we like our men: strong, straight up, and garnished with blue-cheese-stuffed olives. And that's just they way they make 'em at the intimate Red the Steakhouse. Bombay Sapphire gin, a drop of dry vermouth, a vigorous tango in an ice-filled shaker concluded by the melodic plop-plop of two plump, salty, cheese-stuffed olives makes a time-honored introduction to a robust meal of fire-singed beef and rich, indulgent sides. While the Napa-style decor — stacked-stone walls, soaring ceilings, and sleek appointments — contradicts the usual cave-like steakhouse vibe, you only need look 'round at tables filled with well-dressed men conducting Important Business to know you've come to the right place. And those $11.50 martinis? Just a reminder that the Good Life goes on, albeit in a cocktail glass. Red is at 3355 Richmond Rd. in Beachwood; for more info, call 216-831-2252 or go to — Elaine T.
