Had dinner at Red Light last night with a bunch of friends. We sat outside despite near-blizzard temps. Luckily there was a heat lamp, though it stopped working midway-through, then they managed to crank it back up again so we were were nice and toasty. I'm posting a few of the menu items since I haven't written much about the place since it opened. Much of the menu can be ordered in small or large portions which is great for tasting a variety of plates. It's still really affordable and the service was very good last night. They were really nice and waived the corkage fees for our party (though it wasn't quite clear what the corkage fee is), and we also ordered a nice bottle of pinot for $27.
One of the nicest surprises of the night was when the waiter came out with this huge terrine of New Orleans-style bbq shrimp, compliments of the house, as a reward for our sitting out in the cold last night. Deelish, those little shrimipies were, and the sauce was perfect for sopping up with the toasted baguettes.
