RED O Restaurants opened their newest location in Santa Monica along the bustling stretch of Ocean Avenue across from the iconic Santa Monica Pier with Master Chef Rick Bayless. Locals and tourists can now experience Red O’s signature Mexican inspired prime steaks and seafood using authentic Mexican sauces prepared with ingredients that are primarily sourced from local farms using sustainable practices to create dishes of un-paralleled flavor and quality. Executive Chef Keith Stich brings an elevated level of expertise to Red O with signature dishes including the Surf ‘n’ Turf Seafood Tablita and the Goat Cheese Tamale. The Surf ‘n’ Turf Tablita is an elaborate dish featuring a prime, 32 ounce Tomahawk Ribeye Chop and a Jumbo 1 1/2 lb. Maine Lobster fileted and served tableside with a selection of authentic Mexican inspired accompaniments.
Red O’s signature Mexican Cuisine by Rick Bayless is served in an atmosphere reminiscent of the beach front character at a Cabo San Lucas Resort. The ceiling design is a modern take on a Palapa, and is paired with aged walls, Moorish lanterns, and rustic tiles. Outside, the restaurant will feature cozy cabanas and high top seating for guests to enjoy the perfect alfresco dining experience. The combination of all of these design elements truly gives guests the feeling of being transported to a luxurious beachfront resort. Longtime fans of Red O will also recognize the signature tequila wall display, as well as a wine wall that artfully displays the restaurant’s continued dedication to providing the complete culinary experience. In addition to this beachfront view venue, Rick and the Red O team launched the highly acclaimed Red O Restaurant on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles in May 2010, and in 2013 opened their flagship location in Newport Beach.
Luxe Tip: Red O Santa Monica offers “No Corkage Mondays” and you must try their Organic Skinny Margarita made with Sauza Tres Generaciones Organic Blanco Tequila, fresh lime and organic agave nectar, served on the rocks with a salt rim.
