Thank you for the most memorable 18th wedding anniversary! It was our first time at Red Lantern, been meaning to go for years as Luke is one of my culinary heroes. It did not disappoint. The tasting menu is up there in our top 3 dining experiences to date! Thank you so much for the amazing food and wine. It was truly heavenly! Thanks so so much.
