Red Lantern, Boston

39 Stanhope Street
Boston , Massachusetts
Tel: 617 262 3900's insider take:

For Boston, Red Lantern, an Asian-themed restaurant and nightspot that churns out tasty small plates until late, is definitely something different. The product of a deep-pocketed local nightclub group, the place is a little over the top, with tranquil stone Buddhas, red lanterns, and Vietnamese seashells hanging from the 20-foot ceilings, big arched windows, and black-lacquered appointments. But the food that comes out of the open kitchen, sushi bar, and wok stations is decent, the crowd enthusiastic—often local business types entertaining clients, and the hangers-on who want to meet them—and the vibe exotic. If you prefer to visit in the daytime, try Red Lantern's dim sum brunch on Sundays.—Jon Marcus
