Red 8 is Encore Boston Harbor’s signature Asian restaurant for casual and celebratory dining experiences, featuring both classic dishes and the surprising, hard-to-find delicacies.
Dim sum, wok-tossed noodles, duck and seafood capture the spotlight on Red 8’s menu, which is punctuated with authentic, regional, Asian specialties. Known for serving Boston’s best Chinese food, the skilfully prepared Peking Duck comes straight from the wood-fire oven and the whole steamed fish presentation is a feast for the eyes and the palate. From the tank, Alaskan Geoduck Clam or Sampan Style King Crab, are paired with Yangzhou Fried Rice or hand-pulled Dan Dan Noodles.
Expect the freshest seasonal ingredients and the most authentic Asian flavors achieved through the expertise of executive chef Richard Chen, who previously helmed Michelin-star winner Wing Lei in Las Vegas. Using an “East meets West” culinary philosophy, Chen crafts Cantonese cuisine with Chinese and Sichuan influences using Western techniques, producing clean, elevated dishes. Chen continually pursues superb seafood and other curated culinary specialties from around the world.
The main dining room is saturated with rich reds and layers of unique textures, including mahogany and brass accents, red crocodile walls and railings, blue and white chinoiserie, marble floors, and coved ceilings. The restaurant features two of the most exclusive private dining rooms in the city, which allow for elegant and intimate experiences, complete with glowing alabaster urns, chandeliers of Venetian Rubino glass and Lazy Susans on grand, round tables.
