Woodblock is a vibrant new restaurant that opened recently in downtown Redmond. Owned and operated by Tony and Carolyn Scott, Woodblock specializes in craft cocktails and hearty, rustic dishes. I had such a positive experience when I came here for the first time. My boyfriend and I came here during their happy hour and ordered the Cajun Mussels, Fried Calamari, and the Braised Lamb-Pea Risotto. My favorite dish was the Cajun Mussels, even though it was a bit too salty for my taste, the flavors were super powerful and had a nice kick to it. The calamari was nested on a bed of hummus which was a nice combination! For someone who doesn't normally eat lamb, I enjoyed the risotto a lot. The rice was perfectly cooked, and the balsamic gastric gave it a nice balance. I will definitely return to try more dishes!
