Our Review

The second location of the Adobo Grill is all dark reds, Mexican folk art, and paintings of loteria cards, but the night I was there a steady backbeat of cell-phone conversations threatened to kill the ambience. The food, though, was for the most part great. The justifiably famous guacamole was chunky, spicy, and bright; ceviche, cool and tart, was also delicious, if a bit difficult to get at in the now-obligatory martini glass. Are you supposed to drink it? Grilled lamb chops, a special, were caramelized on the outside and rosy pink on the inside, and they tasted even better than they looked. Our waiter was charming but agonizingly elusive. Luckily, I could spend all night with Adobo's incomparable margaritas--and the next morning with cafe de olla (coffee with cinnamon, orange peel, and brown sugar), served at the excellent, undiscovered Sunday brunch.
