First look inside Crimson Canary, open for dinner tonight

Crimson Canary, the second restaurant from the owners of Interstate Kitchen & Bar, opened at 6 p.m. today in the former home of Mona's at 141 South Broadway.

The Italian-American restaurant is named after a 1945 who-done-it. As co-owner Joey Newman told Cafe Society last week: "We're drawing from the Mafioso era of great Italian food but done more at a superlative, hip level. This is not your usual red sauce kind of place." The walls are covered with mugshots of gangsters, and the clubby chairs in the center of the restaurant add to that oh-so-of-the-moment Prohibition-era bar feel.

The Crimson Canary space was meant to work as both a restaurant and bar, and there are happy-hour specials from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. every day, including $4 house whites and reds, $7 charcuterie board, $3 fried calamari and $2 PBRs. (See the full menu is here.)
