RED, the Steakhouse, Back on Track to Open at Pinecrest

If any questions lingered as to Red, the Steakhouse’s previously announced plans to open a new restaurant at Pinecrest, the company has put those doubts to rest. Today, the organization has announced that construction officially is underway in Orange Village.

Back in 2016, Red Restaurant Group, which also operates Moxie, announced its plans to open a new location at Pinecrest, which would replace the original Red location in Beachwood. Along the way, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, shuttered its Indianapolis location, and recently announced that Moxie would close and undergo a transformation. The lack of any real progress at Pinecrest only intensified the uncertainty.

Today, Red has stated that the new spot is on pace to open this fall. When it does, it will replace the original Beachwood location, which will remain open in the interim.

“This is an exciting time for Red,” reports Gregg Levy, managing partner of the group. “As our downtown location celebrates its fifth anniversary and our sister restaurant in South Beach marks its tenth year in business, Pinecrest is the perfect place to continue to serve Red’s loyal clientele dining on the east side of Cleveland.”

When it does open, the glitzy new steakhouse will spread across 7,500 square feet. Street-level patio seating will bring the dining outdoors, while an expansive rooftop will provide diners with views of, uh, Pinecrest.

Both lunch and dinner will be served.

“Pinecrest joins in the excitement of our shoppers, office tenants, apartment residents and hotel guests who have all been anxiously awaiting Red’s new location in our district,” states Eric Louttit, chief investment officer of Fairmount Properties. “Red delivers an unmatched, world-class dining experience and we’re confident that the Pinecrest location will quickly become the east side’s new hot spot.”
