Hit! Marietta- Red Sky

If you enjoy the tapas dining experience, this a must on your list of places to hit. Red Sky is located near the intersection of Johnson Ferry and Roswell Road in Marietta. Upon recommendation, I made reservations and I'm glad I did as there were two large birthday parties. We ordered a bottle of wine and perused the extensive tapas menu. Most of the plates were in the $5-$7 range, which is very reasonable. The first thing we ordered was the Buffalo Calamari. It was good in flavor, but the calamarie was rings only (true calamari to me includes rings AND tenticles) and a bit heavy in the breading. Going a little lighter, we then tried the grilled asparagus with manchego cheese and a balsamic reduction. I could have eaten several more of that plate! Then we ordered what became my favorite for the evening... marinated Ahi Tuna. Outstanding! We followed that with Seared Tenderloin Carpacio and finally, Lobster Egg Rolls (pictured). And even though we had several items, there were so many more that looked interesting, warranting a return visit! Every Friday and Saturday night, Red Sky has dueling pianos- very entertaining and a great way to end the dinner. This will surely become one of our new favorite places!
