Red Sky Tapas offers up such an unrivaled variety of small plates and martinis in its relaxed, convivial atmosphere – we really do start to believe that we can have it all.So often at restaurants we find ourselves petrified with indecision. Do we really want to commit to an entire rack of lamb? Can we live with ourselves if we bypass the ahi tuna? Will we be feel pangs of regret if we don’t give the muscles a try? Luckily for us, Red Sky Tapas exists to absolve us of our commitment phobia. At last, a place where we can share a wealth of small plates with friends, all whilst sippin’ on a great martini (or two). Plus, their swanky vibes and dramatically lit interior offers an instant retreat from our drab day at the office. Yes, just about every aspect of this Marietta hot spot puts us at ease.
Red Sky’s menu keeps the heart of traditional Spanish tapas alive, but without the restriction of a specific wordly cuisine. Looking for a bite of the Caribbean? Their muscles, which are sautéed in rum and seasoned with traditional Caribbean spices, are your ticket to paradise. Want to go on a Roman holiday? Red Sky’s wide varieties of flatbread pizzas are just the trick. And don’t even get us started on the dreamy concoction that is their Lobster & Roasted Corn Dip. (Trust us, it’s the stuff dreams are made of.) Of course, no evening here would be complete without a martini – and there are plenty to choose from. Perhaps their most infamous concoction? The Desperate Housewife – a faultless combination of vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice and a splash of fresh lime. We’re also partial to their Irish Espresso, made with Three Olives Triple Espresso, Kahlua and Irish Cream. A couple of those in the company of good friends? Maybe we really can have it all.
