We have so many confessions to make.
For starters, if you haven’t figured it out by now, I stopped eating meat at the beginning of the year. I didn’t eat much meat to begin with, so not a whole lot has changed. That said, I’m excited to continue this journey as a vegetarian (#represent), but am prepared to break the new diet when dining at specialty restaurants. ahem: Urban Butcher.
Confession #2: Up until about six months ago, neither of us realized that Adega was actually a restaurant. We thought it was a fancy wine shop, and never bothered to go in. Remember that whole uncultured-swine-from-Nebraska thing? Yeah… Us and fancy don’t get along.
I first ate at Adega with friends Pete and Boosaba and was pleasantly surprised by their menu (and their fish tacos!), so it was especially fun to introduce Cliff to a restaurant we never knew existed. We both loved the casual-yet-charming atmosphere and will definitely keep Adega on our list of fun places to take out-of-town guests. The restaurant is a gem, and Silver Spring is lucky to have such a unique hangout.
I was encouraged by the staff to get a flatbread, but a burger topped with guacamole caught my attention. I chose the veggie burger and Cliff had the Napa Valley Cabernet Burger. We both died over the chipotle mayo. It was so good! The best part, though, was the wine. How could it not be? My glass of Kiona Riesling really hit the spot.
What we ordered:
- Tomato Soup: $4
- Veggie Burger: $8
- Napa Valley Cabernet Burger: $9
- Kiona Riesling: $7.50
