Redbank & Grill : Good food meant to be shared

If you are like me, sometimes lost in the many choices of cuisine in town, but yet, tired of eating the same old type of food over and over again, then halt  ! RedBank Bar & Grill has arrived in town, and should you be in search of a place that can host a large group , then you should head to this all Amercian dining and drinking destination !

Located at the newly revamped shopping connection to Orchard Hotel , Redbank  certainly has a lot to offer! It took over the space that was previoulsy  Tony Roma's and has one of the longest happy hour in town !

You can start to enjoy your drinks as early as 12 noon everyday to 9 pm for your happy hour and get this.. All day on Sundays ! Now, do remember to drink in moderation ! :) 

The Place

There is a good and extensive wine and drink menu for you thirsty people !

Grab a few friends, indulge in some good food and enjoy the ambiance,
plus there is a big screen for you sports enthusiasts !
Check out that floor to ceiling windows and the high ceiling ! 

Started by John Stevens and co founder Matt Connors, they came together and founded Redbank based on their love for good quality American food and the love of sports. The kitchen is helm by Chef Nicolas who has spent 18 years in the culinary world with 8 years spent in France, has certainly done justice to some of the classic and traditional dishes ( of founder's John's family )

The menu

The Food

Most of the grilled food were cooked in the restaurant's Josper charcoal grill . This kitchen 'toy' is well loved by many chefs around the world 

It's time to show you what we have enjoyed that evening ! 

Let's start off the night with a nice hearty bowl of  French Onion Soup $15.  Topped with cheese gratin, this comforting bowl of soup is unlike the other French onion soup you have tasted ! The onions have been fried to perfect golden caramelized form before it was placed in the stove for the soup . Delicious is what it is !

The salad was presented to us in a oval bowl and it somewhat resembles a bath tub of sort .
It contains blue cheese which may be a turn off to some . So I suggest do not mix the salad up as it may just ruin the experience for those who doesn't quite enjoy this cheese 


Fried oysters sandwiched between two pieces of fragrant buttermilk biscuits . I bet you have never tried this
in Singapore before ! I can even just eat the biscuits on its own! Oysters were nicely done to a perfect crisp!

Virginia Style Oysters Biscuits $18

Tuna Tartare $20
Fresh and mixed with shallots, herbs, lemon and olive oil.
Pretty decent !

 Can't get enough of all the seafood !
Here's two whole softshell crabs seasoned with Old bay seasoning
Maryland Soft shell Crabs $19


I totally recomm.ordering this
3 types of cheese Mac & Cheese $12 !
Comfort food at its best  !!
Baked to nice golden brown with tons of cheese :)
Totally melted my heart

Main Courses

I was half expecting a deep fried plate of seafood platter .Imagine my joy when this pretty fresh
Mixed Seafood Grill
  was served instead ! Definitely a seafood lover's delight to be eating this :)

 I particularly enjoyed the capsicum sauce with the salmon, sea bass and prawn. I cannot resonate with the tuna thou .. Tad tough ..I much prefer my tuna raw 😄 but over all for $33 it is a good deal !

 This steak is a good size for sharing !
Ribeye approx. 300g $45
Literally melt in the mouth..very nicely done at medium rare 


Lemon pie

This pie has very pretty merinque swirls. Beneath all that fluffy torched sweetness is a punch in your face lemon curd that instantly wakes you up fro a coma ! Chef Nicolas said of coz it is sour..its a lemon tart after all! Prepared fresh daily at $12 each. Pss : this is really for those who loves a sourish and sweet tart !

New York Cheesecake $12
This is a not too dense rendition of this classic cake
Most of us at the tasting enjoyed this !

I must say this Creme Brulee $12 is my favorite dessert for the night 
Love the top torched sweet goodness and the soft pudding beneath
Great value again and good for sharing !

Truly enjoyed the food at Redbank ! I will be back for more ..
Thank you Redbank and Melody for the invite !
