Through the years, Sevier Avenue has turn into a daily hotspot for high quality eating places; Touchdown Home, Simpl and South Coast Pizza are a number of of the names that come to thoughts. Now you’ll be able to add one other one to that record: Redbud Kitchen, which is in the identical advanced as Hello-Wire Brewing. The Grub Partner and I dropped in for dinner this previous weekend.
The Partner and I’ve carried out an honest job of making an attempt to eat more healthy these previous few years (weekly Grub indulgences however), so we have been happy to see that Redbud Kitchen’s menu made it straightforward for us to search out meal choices that have been each nutritious and engaging. Many objects cater particularly to these with vegetarian and gluten-free preferences.
Munchies (small plates) embody rooster basil and pesto portabella flatbreads, a hummus platter, pulled pork with spicy tater tots, and chili shrimp tacos. The Partner and I gave severe consideration to a number of alternatives from the Out of Hand (sandwiches) part of the menu. These included the Cranberry Wrap — cranberry chutney, bell peppers, Swiss cheese, shredded carrots, mayo and petite greens in a whole-grain wrap — and the Blazin’ Grilled Chz — pimento cheese on crispy ciabatta bread with smoked cheddar, grilled onion, sriracha aioli and sliced tomato.

Throughout our wait, I nursed a Hello-Wire IPA from the bar, and we each appreciated the bar and eating room’s colourful artwork installations and plentiful mild from the street-side home windows.
Each our plates have been such colorfully vibrant displays, I nearly hated to smash them by digging in. However dig in we did. The Partner’s hummus bowl was a veritable feast, packed to the brim with greens, rooster and the carby-protein double punch of quinoa and black-bean hummus. I sampled every little thing within the bowl, and it was all scrumptious.
I used to be additionally more than happy with my very own choice. The satisfying meatloaf was enhanced by the ketchup glaze and sriracha aioli drizzle, and the broccoli was roasted to excellent texture and taste. I particularly appreciated the creamy potato casserole, which consisted of mashed potatoes inside a agency tacky crust. Completely dreamy.
We boxed up loads of leftovers, so we might wrap up our meal with a few desserts, the Dough Bro (chocolate chip brownie with edible vanilla cookie dough, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and contemporary strawberry) and Redbud’s tackle banana pudding ($5.75 every). Each treats have been unbelievable, particularly the ample serving of banana pudding, which was beneficiant on filling, mild on banana slices and wafer crumbles, and large on taste.
