Red’s Table, the long-anticipated, locally owned restaurant at South Lakes Village Center, will open its doors on Monday, Sept. 7.
Earlier this week, owners Ryan, Matt and Pat Tracy invited some friends and family in to taste some of the craft cocktails and see what’s on tap (lots of local brews) at the former Lakeside Inn space.
The restaurant has received a gut renovation. The new look includes reclaimed wood, granite, an open kitchen and a dining deck overlooking Lake Thoreau. See what’s on the menu in this previous Reston Now article.
Red’s Table will be open seven days a week for dinner (reservations accepted online), Ryan Tracy said. Lunch service should begin in late September, he added.
