Four of us went to the Russian Restaurant, Red Square Euro Bistro, in Denver, last night. http://www.redsquarebistro.com It was closed for some time for remodeling and has now reopened. Entering the restaurant the decor is very appealing, but more important very comfortable. Very attractive bar area and comfortable dining area, with fireplace (it was not on) The meal and service were outstanding. We shared everything in order to get opinions from all. First we ordered some infused Vodka, of which they have a very extensive list of choices (see website) and it was fantastic, over the course of the evening we tried two different ones, both great. For appetizers, we tried the cold Borcht, which was fine but was probably the least memorable item we tried. No bad comments, just no good ones either, very middle of the road. The other item was the Lamb Carpaccio. It is not on the web menu, but was there last night. First, in general regarding the presentation, the Chef/Kitchen gets highest cudos for everything we had, all of the items were as appealing to the eye as the palate. Second, general comment is the Chef has sauces down to perfection. The accompanying sauces with each of the items appetizers and main courses were all extremely delicious. The Carpaccio, was thinly sliced with a small delicate leaf of something that appeared to have been flash fried on top of each piece. Not sure what it was but was an outstanding contrast to the piece of Lamb, this was served with a wonderful brown sauce. The main courses we ordered, 3 for the 4 of us to share (which by the way they provided without batting an eye) were Duck Breast, Salmon Stroganoff and Rack of Lamb. All were ordered medium rare. Each one beautifully presented, each one with a different accompaniment, each one with a different sauce and all of them delicious. Even with ordering only 2 appetizers and 3 main course for 4 people we were all stuffed and therefore did not try the desserts. You can see their menu on line, with prices and draw your on conclusions, they are not inexpensive but for the service, quality of food and ambiance, I deem them good value. We did not have wine, but I did glance through the wine menu and thought it to be a bit pricey, but that is my general opinion of, almost, all restaurant wine prices. They are typically approaching triple the cost of the wine. Did not really mean for this to be so lengthy, but our experience there warranted the time. Overall we had excellent service (Pasha), outstanding food, beautiful ambiance (both inside the restaurant and outside, in Writer's Square) and would recommend them to all. Last comment is that it would be nice if they would arrange to validate your parking ticking in the underground parking garage, under Writer's Square. Steve and Chris, keep up the good work.
