Friday Night Date Night! Well if you can’t get there, bring it home!
It’s not secret that The Hubs and I love Redstone. It’s close to home, they make the best cocktails and they serve delicious food. It’s known that the menu is a bit pricey so we save it for special occasions. We also like to go when I work late. We head over about 9 PM for a cocktail and some appetizers in the bar area. Man I CANNOT wait until we can do that safely again! Anyway since we can’t make that happen right now, we made our own cocktails and brought some of our favorites home for a date night!
One of the items Redstone is famous for is their Buffalo Shrimp. They are expensive but they are good. We got the large portion of 5 shrimp for $19. The smaller portion is 3 for a few bucks less but trust me if you are sharing make sure you get the large. Delish.
What was great about the take-out serving is that they had everything packaged separately so the shrimp didn’t get mushy. The buffalo sauce and the very high quality blue cheese crumbles were both in separate containers. We put it on the crispy shrimp when we were ready to indulge.
We also ordered a Wedge Salad. This is one of my favorite salads ever. Sadly, Redstone took this salad off their main menu last year sometime. That was very disappointing. They said that they were trying to get all of their locations with the exact same menu for consistency so this was one of the salads that was removed. BUT HAPPILY THEY RETURNED IT TO THE COVID19 TAKE-OUT MENU HERE in Plymouth Meeting!
The lettuce was cool and crisp. It is made using thick, seasoned bacon and creamy blue cheese dressing. There is also diced green onion, perfectly ripe grape tomatoes and those high-quality blue cheese crumbles used on the shrimp. It’s a large portion and it was fine for us for sharing! (Around $10).
Mmmmmmm The Redstone Burger. (I believe it was $16). Let me tell you this is one of my top restaurant burgers. It is always cooked perfect. The chefs always get it right no matter who is on the grill. It’s toppings, including lettuce, tomato and pickles, are always fresh. The bacon is thick and crispy and the brioche bun is toasted and complimentary. The BBQ sauce is delicious. If they bottled it, I’d buy it. The fries…well they are just ok. They remind me of McDonalds fries which are good but I would expect a little more sophisticated fries from Redstone. If you are at the restaurant ask them to “truffle your fries” for a few extra bucks (I think $3). It’s totally worth it. They drizzle truffle oil all over the fries and load them up with herbs and grated cheese. You can probably substitute the fries with mashed potatoes or coleslaw. The other sides are probably available too with a small up-charge…usually $2. (I hate up-charges – I think they’re tacky).
Redstone did not disappoint. We were satisfied with all that we ate and it was worth every penny. I encourage you to support Redstone in Plymouth Meeting so that they can open again for us all to enjoy. Here is a picture of their current menu items available for pick-up. The only problem here is they don’t list their prices! You’ll either have to call for prices or just take your chances. 🤷🏼♀️
In addition to what I mentioned in my blog, I can also recommend for appetizers, the brussel sprouts and the wings with BBQ sauce. For main entrees I can recommend the classic chicken, the baby back ribs and the braised beef short rib. I’ve had them all and they are all Redstone classics (like the burger).
That’s it for this edition of TAKE OUT. I give Redstone a 4.75 out of 5 forks! Be safe everyone! Remember I wear a mask for you and you wear a mask for me. Thanks for reading folks! And don’t fret, we will be eating out again soon enough!
