It's been a busy day, and after the immense Start with Art luncheon, I stopped in to downtown's new Adobo Grill this afternoon to take a quick look and catch up with Chef Javier Fuentes, his partner and general manager, George Munoz, and consultant Chef Karl Benko.
Sounds like things are on track for an evening event tonight -- and their VIP cocktail opening tomorrow night. More on food (and the upcoming Pikk's Tavern) next week, but in the meantime, here are a few pics of the renovated interior to hold you over. (As a reminder, here's what it looked like just a few weeks ago.)
Warm woods, copper, orange and blue glass, mix with the darker tones of the bar and metal work. They've managed to make it feel upscale and urban -- very different from their northside location, much more like their original Chicago location from what we've heard.
Adobo Grill (110 E. Washington) opens to the public on Weds, Sept 10 for dinner. Lunches shortly there after, and look for upcoming brunch service. Call 842-9990 for reservations. More pictures at Flickr.
