Gothic older sister of the Annex's Green Room Cafe, the Red Room welcomes you into it's lantern-lit embrace with eclectic cheap-eats kind of menu and one kick-ass Sangria recipe.

The sangria is made with crappy wine and is watered down too much. The salade nicoise made me want to cry! What am I a frikken horse? whay are you serving me RAW GIANT OLD INDUSTRIAL CARROTS, you know those jumbo ones meant for soups. The pieces were chunky and a choking hazard. Cold undercooked potatoes, raw unblanched vegiies. Absolutey failed me. I would only serve this dish to livestock, not a human. Also the remainder of the menu is slightly an eigth of a step up from the Greenroom.

I get insulted by these reatsurants and types of places. I am not a trashy suburbanite in "hipster clothes". I know what good food is and I dont care if you think I am a snob. This food sucks major ass.

I had pad thai here a month or two ago, and I thought it was okay but I wasn't really paying attention to my food at the time. Today I ordered a Vietnamese coffee and the udon stirfry with chicken. The coffee was decent, but nothing special. The stirfry was ridiculously greasy. I don't think I'll order food here again. $14 pitchers, including Steamwhistle and Tankhouse, but if I want those I'll go to Toby's (which has the same for $10).

An update: I came back again to study with a friend, and ordered a soup+sandwich combo. The sandwich wasn't actually that bad, though I forget which one it was. The soup (tomato barley) was way too salty. Also, Toby's doesn't have $10 Steamwhistle pitchers any more.

I was there for the first time yesterday. I had the French toast, with home fries and fruit salad all for $5.25. It was delicious and filling. I'm a simple man and to me, it delivered everything that I hoped it would.

Their food is actually quite good and very inexpensive. I've been to most of the college bars in the area (Einstein's, Molly Blooms, etc) and they are bad -- greasy fried pub food; Red room has actual home-cooked food -- proper salads, proper grilled meat. I recommend the curry chicken, beef skewers, pad thai, soup & sandwich combo. If you're looking for fancy cuisine, look elsewhere, but for about $6 a plate they do a great job.
