In the last year we lost a restaurant that has been hit or miss - Luciano's. The chain was replaced by a new one - Redwater Grill. Another upscale entry in the market. The menu we saw online didn't really inspire us, but I finally convinced Darlene that we should check it out, especially since one of them is just a 3 minute drive from our house.
The decor is typical of new restaurants - lots of muted, dark colours and focused lighting. But on to the food. I ordered the Italian bacon and cheese gourmet pizza. It was very tasty. But Darlene's chicken fettuccine alfredo was awful. She said "Lipton Sidekicks would be better than this." I had to taste for myself and I agreed. It was tasteless, the sauce watery and flat. The pasta was undercooked.
What a shame. For a gourmet restaurant, they were a perilous 1 for 2. We haven't completely given up on this new place, but our next visit will have to be perfect for them to see us through their doors again.
