Drawing an Upper Kirby lunch and dinner crowd, Café Red Onion is careful to stress that it is not a Tex-Mex restaurant. Instead, it turns out a "Latin fusion" menu sprinkled with Caribbean influences. Familiar items such as quesadillas are available, along with chicken and seafood dishes, enchiladas, fajitas and empanadas. A moderately priced wine list and specialty margaritas comprise the main booze selections. A private banquet room is available, with separate menus offered for special occasion parties.
