CloverEats: Red Brick Kitchen & Bar in Dexter


It was storming and pouring when I finished work, so I asked Fred for a ride home. He surprised me by driving not home, but to the Red Brick Kitchen & Bar in Dexter. It’s about the season we usually venture out to Dexter for their cider mill and to stock up on raspberry wine from the Sandhill Crane’s tasting room. There was unfortunately a 40 minute wait, but since we had come all the way, we put our names down and walked around, our umbrellas only somewhat protecting us from the rain.


Bourbon Cobbler – House infused blackberry bourbon, muddled basil, fresh blackberries, basil infused simple syrup topped with soda water; Cold War -Spiced pear infused vodka, ginger beer, fresh lime juice

Once we were seated, we started off the night with some refreshing cocktails and fried green tomato appetizers. These were delicious, hot and savory little bites.


Fried Green Tomatoes: cornmeal dusted and fried until golden brown, topped with chevre cheese and homemade red pepper jam


Southwest Sliders: four sirloin sliders topped with guacamole, crispy onion straws, pepper jack cheese, and chipotle aioli. served on Hawaiian rolls; Sweet Potato Dunkers: oven roasted hand cut sweet potato “fries” served with a ginger-soy dipping sauce


Spicy Rustic Tuscan: asparagus, tomato, garlic, amish chicken breast and bacon tossed in olive oil and mixed with red pepper flakes and tossed with penne pasta

My pasta was a complex assortment of flavors.  The sliders were tasty.
