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 skillfully 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 Maine Lobster or Oysters with Black Bean Sauce pair it with Yang Chow Fried Rice or hand-pulled BBQ Pork & Vegetable Chow Mein.
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.
"I absolutely loved eating at Red 8! Their food is so delicious, fresh, and truly authentic. I love Sichuan and Chinese cuisine, and Red 8 offered a wide array of classic and authentic Asian cuisine as well as American favorites. They offer delicious tea, beer, and cocktails to complement their delectable food. The staff is incredible and I would go back there anytime for any of their entrees or soups! I loved it!"
