Not a new menu as such, but a fun new way to enjoy a menu beloved by pretty much everyone who has taste buds. Over at Red Iguana’s second location (just around the corner from the first) this new outdoor patio, that clocks in at 100 feet long. Covered, heated and “fanned”, hopefully it means more seats and less wait time for their legion of fans.
