If you’re looking for a restaurant that offers a menu contrary to your normal steak and potatoes type of dinner, Red Bamboo is definitely the place to experience.  Yeah, it’s a vegan friendly restaurant, but the delectable panko breaded and rosemary seasoned Soul “Chicken” will easily influence anyone to come back for more. The menu is unique, ranging from vegan burgers to soy beef, and the close-knit "homey" feel will seem as if you’re at your mother’s house for dinner. Stop by for lunch or grab a bite with your date before happy hour.Cedric Hall
