Redd – Yountville

Redd is one of our favorite places for lunch in Yountville. It is an easy walk from our hotel and we try to order “light” before a French Laundry meal – sometimes we are not very successful. We do order splits – one for two.

Richard Reddington’s cuisine has many Asian influences – as a personal preference, I happen to really like that aspect of his cuisine.

The room is simple and modern with clean lines.

Champagne from their list

Sashimi of hamachi, sticky rice, edamame, lime ginger sauce – this is a lovely dish with sushi quality hamachi

Yellowfin tuna and hamachi tartare, avocado, chili oil, fried (crispy) rice – actually the rice is made the usual way and then quickly deep-fried to achieve “puffed” rice – another winner and even though the hamachi ingredient is repeated, the taste is completely different from the previous dish.

A gift from the Richard Reddington, the chef. Shrimp salad, little gem lettuce, heirloom cherry tomatoes, pancetta, avocado, tempura squash blossoms – a light summer salad with  perfectly cooked shrimp and summer vegetables from the garden.

Sauteed pork shoulder, crispy pork belly, hoisin, steamed pork buns, Asian vegetable salad (cabbage, celery, carrots, green onions) – another ode to Asian cuisine that was pork goodness to be wrapped in a steamed bun.

A lovely lunch.
