Chef and owner Robert E. Midence wants diners to enjoy an unforgettable experience at his new Reds, Whites & Brews Restaurant — and that includes works of art.

The dining spot debuted May 3 at 15614 Huebner Road, Suite 116.

“I have always wanted to open a restaurant,” Midence said, “I’ve been cooking since my days in the Air Force because I didn’t like the food at the chow hall. Since then, I’ve picked up new recipes from all the countries I’ve traveled to.”

The restaurant caters to nearby neighborhoods, offering customers a nice glass of wine or a beer close to home while they enjoy dishes from a menu featuring international cuisine.

The Red Red La-a-a-a-amb, a dish that is brined, sautéed and served with red wine pan sauce, is popular. So are the meat and cheese board and the brie with jalapeño appetizer, the owner said.

The eggplant lasagna is both vegetarian and gluten-free. The anafré de frijoles, or bean puree, may be vegan if requested, with no cheese.

But there’s more to this restaurant than food and drink. Diners can also view  works by local artists lining the walls and even purchase them.

“My idea was simple,” Midence said. “Get artists to display their work and in return I got to decorate my restaurant for free. I don’t take commission for the sale except for any credit card charges and sales tax.”

He added, “The artists are local. Most came in and saw the artwork being displayed and then offered to bring their work in.”

Happy Hour is from 3-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and features 20 percent off any bottle of wine and discounts on a glass of wine or a bottle of beer.

Hours are 1 – 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 1 – 11 p.m. Friday and 3 – 11 p.m. Saturday.
