Blue crab grilled cheese, wine on tap, and 100+ to-go beers

Not just what Carrot Top gets when walking by plastic surgery clinics, Redwood's also a 60-seat bar-cum-bistro-cum-beer-bodega from the same dude behind next-door's Copabanana. It's got 100+ beers available for mix-and-match six-pack carryout, plus bites:Bistro Staples: The front bar and cloth napkin'd back room both serve bites like oysters and shrimp cocktails, choose-your-own-charcuterie adventures with Euro meats and cheeses (think Chorizo-smoked Chorizo and ripe blue Roquefort), braised beef and marmalade duck paninis, a grilled three cheese & meat, and daily entree specials like a Porcini-encrusted ribeye with a butter mashed potato, but not a mashed potatoe unless it's also served with Quayle.Booze To Stay: The century mark-topping bottle list satisfies every ABV from a 2.5% Famboise to a 9.1% Victory Storm King Stout, plus there're 24 tap wines (and 100 bottles) sourced from PA to Japan and served in 3 or 5oz pours from a Cruvinet tank. Also: they're doing a dozen artisanal 'tails heavy on the bourbon, including the Black Pearl (Bulleit, St Germaine, Creme Yvette) and a Rye Whiskey Manhattan with Bulleit, or what you'd likely put in Carrot Top if he showed up at your place after walking by one of those plastic surgery clinics. Or anytime.
