Generally, we’re within a point of each other, but Ada Street had the largest point spread, from a 2 to a 5. Some reasons for the 2: 1) the Brewer thought the atmosphere was pretentious. (Upon entering, you pass the turntable and album stand and are told they only play LP’s and you can make requests); and 2) the lack of decent seating for parties of 5.
Some of what we ordered: marinated olive, polenta fries, fried manchego cheese, fried brussels sprouts, salmon spring roll, strip loin with aged balsamic. On special: a gnocchi dish.
The Money and the Blogger would definitely return and sit at the bar.
Cuisine and style of dining: “Ada Street’s menu celebrates the seasons with beautiful ingredients, passion and love.”
