A sophisticated, sensual and tailored Asian Restaurant and Lounge, Red Lantern is unlike anything Boston has seen before. Red Lantern’s concept was developed by Big Night Entertainment Group, which is responsible for numerous award-winning venues including Shrine at Foxwoods, Scorpion Bar at Foxwoods and High Rollers Luxury Lanes and Lounge at Foxwoods, and Empire and Gem in Boston. Partners Ed Kane, Joe Kane, Randy Greenstein and Chef Kevin Long (Tosca, Stars, Shrine) conceived and created Red Lantern to fill a void in Boston dining and nightlife.
With a seating capacity of almost 250 people, Red Lantern features an open kitchen, full sushi counter and custom wok station. Large, oversized tables, a custom community table and a private dining room that can accommodate 40 people. The space is designed by award-winning designer Peter Niemitz, who hit it out of the park with Shrine at Foxwoods and Tosca in Hingham.
Entering the space, the guest is immediately transported to another world. Oversized custom wooden Asian doors lead right into a handsome foyer area. From there the guest can enter through 20′ Asian Ceremonial Black-lacquered doors and enter the bar area or make their way into the dining room featuring an open kitchen. The bar itself creates a mythical, sensual Asian experience. Hundreds of small red lanterns hang from the ceiling offset by strands of seashells from Vietnamese beaches. Tailored, custom settees, Asian seats and an oversized dining table with lamps set the mood. Wide plank wood flooring, custom carpet and a stone dining counter enhance the feel. The open kitchen, complete with a custom, center wok station with its oversized gold-leafed ziggurat hood, and 6 seat sushi counter, is really the centerpiece of the room. A 40-seat private dining room with a custom apothecary wall and fabric padded ceilings add a level of sophistication that make it the perfect setting for a high end party.
