Redbird is one of those restaurants that is mesmerizing. Located in Downtown Los Angeles, it is housed in the former rectory building of the Vibiana. The main dining room is open, sophisticated and contemporary with a retractable ceiling. Somehow, Chef Neal Fraser got it right for creating the perfect balance between modern and comfort within the realm of the restaurant.
The food is vibrant, eclectic and innovative. The menu ranges from small bites to large plates that are meant to be shared. The Top Chef Masters contestant collaborated with Julian Cox for a downright beautiful cocktail menu.

|Complimentary Aperitif ...nice, simple and a good way to start my meal|
|NEW CALEDONIAN SHRIMP ($16.00): Grits, Cocoa nib, Chipotle mole. This dish was cooked superbly. The shrimp was cooked to perfection and the chipotle mole was spicy and rich. The dish was cohesive and the grits...oh man...I want me some more!|
