Red Lotus, the latest venture from Kru restaurateur Billy Ngo, opened quietly in April at 28th and J streets. Since then, Ngo and his crew have been fine tuning the menu and creating its cocktail program with help from Erick Castro (former Zocalo mixologist and co-founder of Midtown Cocktail Week). It's all been pretty low key at Red Lotus (2716 J St., Sacramento), but that's about to change. Red Lotus is throwing a grand opening bash on June 17, that'll include a Dim Sum-styled feast. More details are coming soon, but we do know the party will start at 6 p.m.
