As rare as those sunny and clear days in the city are, it doesn’t get much better than relaxing on a pier, basking in the sun with a cold beer and a burger. Red’s is a no-frills establishment, in business since the 1950s, and is a throwback of simpler times. In a city where typical burgers are customizable with a list of gourmet upgrades, the burgers at Red’s are served on a French roll, toppings include ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and onions. For those that prefer their burger with lettuce and tomato, maybe a little bacon or avocado need go elsewhere. The fries are the frozen variety, the fish and chips? Well you get the idea. The cheap food is not the draw of this place; it’s the charming back patio with the nice views, a pleasant respite from the bustle of city life.
