Sounds like Red Dot is returning, but maybe with some changes

Despite the fact that it looks from the outside like nothing much has happened at Red Dot, 6715 W. North Ave. in East Tosa, since a fire shuttered it in early May, a post on the restaurant's Facebook page suggests something is in the works.

"We apologize that no news has come from the RD camp," reads the post, presumably penned by owner Martin Beaudoin.

"We owe the community more frequent updates. Its just that we have been enjoying our time off so much! World Cup at Café Hollander. Libations galore at BelAir Cantina. Late nights at Walters on North. Tons of ice cream at Fro Zone Wauwatosa! Many days on Bradford Beach listening to some new jams by our friend Twan Mack.

"Our goal is to plan something that builds on the momentum we had with Red Dot and activates North Avenue in a unique way. Stay tuned ... and thanks for all of the support and love. We appreciate it more than you know!"

That sounds a bit like a re-think of the bar and restaurant, which opened as the Sherbrooke in 2013 before rebranding as Red Dot just a few months later.

So, I asked.

"We want to keep everything that was great and improve on everything that wasn't great," was the reply. "We have the opportunity to be a great bar and a great community resource."

In another reply, Beaudoin said, "We have momentum and our hope/goal is to keep it moving forward!"

We'll find out what that means, specifically, in the coming months, I guess.
