Fodor's Expert Review Red Star Tavern & Roast House

$$ Downtown American

Cooked in a wood-burning oven, smoker, rotisserie, or grill, the dishes at Red Star can best be described as American comfort food inspired by the bounty of the Pacific Northwest. Spit-roasted chicken, wood-fired steak, fisherman's stew with seafood and chorizo, and IPA-braised rabbit are some of the better entrées. The drinks list includes a good mix of regional and international wines, an extensive bourbon collection, and a variety of microbrews on tap. The spacious restaurant, adjacent to Hotel Monaco, has tufted leather booths, murals, and copper accents.
