Redstone is one of the new restaurants at the revamped Plymouth Meeting Mall (more stores and restaurants, less parking).
Billed as an American grill, I went on a Monday to avoid the crushing crowds that seem to flock to the place the rest of the week. With good reason, my friends.
First, the bloody mary is presented with a gazillion garnishes (they call it “a meal in a glass”) including ring bologna, shrimp, lemon, lime, bleu cheese stuffed olive and a mini gherkin. It’s a good bloody mary.
The spinach artichoke dip was good. The cornbread. Oh, my. The cornbread appetizer, served in its own cast iron skillet the way Elvis’s cooks would have served it to him at Graceland, well, that is worth the trip. Just delicious and the maple butter they include with it just enhances it.
As for the dinner, I had a tasty barbeque chicken and my companion had a half rack of the ribs. Both were tender, smoked well and tasty. The cole slaw was homemade and subtle and the baked beans were just like I like ’em: full of flavor and bits of bacon.
Not too expensive: $56 for two appetizers, two entrees and drinks. I recommend Redstone.
