Midwest Living Review

Doug Clough
Red Steakhouse offers upscale meals in an elegant setting.

Red Steakhouse, opened in 2011, adds elegance to Vermillion's dining scene. Located in the old First National Bank and Trust building, the beautiful surroundings enhance a fantastic meal. The atmosphere is upscale, but it's not unusual to find diners in blue jeans or khakis. There is a bar and dining on the main floor and dining space on a high-ceilinged mezzanine. Keeping with the bank history, the basement vault remains, but it's home to a well-stocked wine cellar. The menu is a traditional mix of steaks, seafood and pastas. A cup of the signature shrimp and clam chowder soup ($4.99) featured plenty of meat and a rich, creamy texture. The evening's house special, an 8-ounce top sirloin topped with a fillet of salmon and a tomato-pesto sauce ($25.99), was delicious. The salmon was flaky and fresh, the steak was tender, and the tomato-pesto sauce complemented both. A plate of angel hair pasta with chicken scaloppini Parmesan ($15.99) tasted fantastic at first bite, but in the end proved too rich. For dessert, chocolate creme brulee ($4.99) proved decadent and perfect for sharing. For the area, the prices are somewhat steep, but they're justified by the food and setting. For a special-occasion dinner or an upscale date night, Red Steakhouse is a worthwhile destination.
