Red Stone’s story started over 10 years ago here in the heart of New York City. After a long career developing brands and concepts for other ‘fast food’ companies, owners Tony Tertiropoulos (born and raised in Greece) and Vera Giannaris (Manhattan native) realized that too much time was invested in expanding quickly and not enough on serving quality food to the community. They wanted a place where they could feed their own kids without feeling guilty, and so, they embarked on a mission to take their time and prepare real, home-cooked and healthy food for their neighbors.
Red Stone starts with fresh, and by fresh, I do not mean fresh out of the freezer, or fresh from a factory far, far away! The ingredients used at Red Stone Café are hand selected, locally grown, and delivered daily. Part of the restaurant mission is to help support and sustain local farms, while obtaining only the highest quality produce, dairy and meats, with no added hormones or antibiotics. By supporting Red Stone, you are SUPPORTING SMALL BUSINESS, and that is more important now than ever before!
Like their artisanal producers, Tony and Vera believe it’s not too much to ask for something good and good for you, something made with a little love and care! That’s why everything at Red Stone is made from scratch, by hand, using only the most natural ingredients, freshly throughout the day. All we ask for in return is that you take the time to Enjoy!
Red Stone- from our family to yours!
Manhattan may be a veritable playground for adults, with bars on every block and world-class parties hosted every night of the week, but despite the island’s heavily adult-centric atmosphere, there’s still plenty of fun to be had for the underage set. The Upper West Side is a particularly family-friendly zone, with plentiful kid-friendly restaurants, museums, and green space at every turn. Check out our favorite activities for children under ten below.
The American Museum of Natural History: Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! The Museum of Natural History is a favorite among New Yorkers of all age, but tends to inspire a particularly high degree of wonder among children. Whether you’re simply milling around the museum or checking out a presentation at the Hayden Planetarium, the museum fosters can draw some pretty big wows out of even the crankiest customers.
Riverside Park: While some New Yorkers are lucky enough to have lush green space right outside their door, like the residents at High Line-straddling Chelsea condo 505 West 19th Street, for many, the local park will have to do. For those families fortunate enough to live on the Upper West Side, Riverside Park often becomes a home away from home, thanks to its multiple playgrounds, outdoor events, and pleasant walking and biking paths.
The Children’s Museum of Manhattan: “Hands off” may be the cardinal rule at most museums, but the Children’s Museum of Manhattan encourages its visitors to get in on the action. With interactive exhibits, presentations, and classes, there’s never a dull moment at this unique museum.
NY Kids Club: Unlike the Meatpacking District’s adults-only hotspots, the Upper West Side has a club that’s for kids only. The NY Kids Club offers classes on everything from language to cooking in addition to open playtime and party space.
West Side Kids: On those days when no amount of culturally enriching activities will content your little one, a toy store is sure to please. This local favorite not only carries a wide variety of toys and books, but the staff seem perfectly content to allow little ones to explore to their heart’s content.
New York may be full of plenty of grown-up fun, but it hasn’t forgotten about its littlest residents. Whether you’re in the mood for a museum or just a stroll through the park, Manhattan more than delivers with its kid-friendly haunts.
As we say goodbye to sweet summer, we welcome festive fall. Fall on the Upper West Side is always tons of fun! From marvelous markets to exciting exhibits, this fall on the UWS is sure to be a good one.
