Enjoying Delicious Treats

Beautiful Platters of Yummy Red Seven Appetizers

Red Seven makes the most luscious food. I’ve attended some great events there and always enjoyed great food, still for some reason I haven’t gone there for a regular dinner.  I am definitely making it a priority dinner destination from now on after being reminded just how much I love the food there.  My favorite dish of everything I tasted the entire evening was from Red Seven and it was the Fried Oysters with some kind of incredible sauce and served in a shell.  It was just so perfectly crispy in just the right places.  The oysters were large too, and even though I didn’t want to get too full on one food item with all the yummy things to taste, I ended up eating 5 of them. Yes I know, how could I?…. but I did it anyway, and I can’t wait to go back to Red Seven to eat them again.  I honestly can say I’ve never tasted anything quite like them.

A Handsome Man Offering Tasty Foods---What Could be Better?

Red Seven passed around a wonderful array of tasty tidbits, but my vote for second favorite of the night would have to go to Matt Accarrino of Craft, in Los Angeles with his Grilled Skirt Steak with Spiced Flatbread.  It was just delicious with the most perfect marinade.  The Famous Chef Tom Colicchio, who is well known as the affable Main Judge on the hit television show “Top Chef”, owns craft.
