Fred is your pal who opened a modern Italian wine bar, beachside. And that’s a good friend to have.

The room is timeless and moody, with the Ambleside sunset reflecting off the bronze mirrored walls. A party booth seats 12 of your well behaved friends, and really about 12 more as the night goes on.

All the materials used come from a palette of five or six colors and materials. Bold crimson marble, dark tan leather benches with cozy corners, walnut, ceramic. Connected to, and like it’s sister cafĂ©, Crema, Fred’s is bustling with action as soon as the doors open up.
