RED WING, Minn. -- More than two years in the making, the Scarlet Kitchen and Bar inside the historic St. James Hotel is open and serving the public.
“The planning took several months,” said Marilyne Bouteiller, director of sales and marketing for the St. Jame Hotel. “A year ago we worked on the outside patio and expanded it. This year we did the inside.”
The area for the new restaurant used to be The Veranda Restaurant. In addition to physical work and a new name, the restaurant also has a new menu, according to Bouteiller.
