Miami New Times' Description

Red Light is a unique restaurant with great food prepared by a gifted chef at peerless prices -- in either a boisterous, buoyant environment or by a serenely flowing river. The fun and funky diner fills with a largely local clientele that exudes a more salt-of-the-earth vibe than is usually found at restaurants run by chefs as notable as Kris Wessel. There are no appetizers or entrées listed as such, but most of the menu specialties can serve in either capacity. Fresh, regional American comfort foods include a hot skillet of baked organic eggs draped with melted Morbier and bacon crisps ($11); thin slices of sous vide Florida spiny lobster ($16); New Orleans-inspired barbecued shrimp smothered in thin, dark, peppery sauce; corn-bread-crusted fillet of local hog snapper atop a sprightly black-bean/sour-orange stir-fry ($17); and plum-roasted quail, one or two juicy birds ($8/$15). Sides include mac 'n' cheese and grits with blue cheese, and homespun desserts such as peach-blueberry tart and "lunch counter" chocolate cake are heartwarmingly delicious.

    Best Restaurant Value - All starters, including a big-flavored Big Easy oyster stew with absinthe cream and crackers, are under $10.

    The bartender here is fabulous. She has a gift for creating a drink that is exactly right for the moment & mood, even if you're not a big drinker. Plus, she picks the house music and it's great.

    FYI - They don't have a full bar anymore

    Try to get a seat by the river and enjoy the deliciousness of the BBQ shrimp and dip bread! Never a disappointment!
