A Redstone American Grill opening in Chevy Chase, Maryland, this summer will be the sixth unit in this chain of casual fine-dining restaurants spread across five states. Founder Dean Vlahos built the 10-year-old chain on his vision of an upscale, casual experience aimed at Baby Boomers. The restaurants’ “spirited, rugged and romantic” ambience is key to their identity: Redstone’s units boast large stone fireplaces, granite bars, lots of wood and open exhibition kitchens with rotisserie and wood-burning grills.
