Yep. New chef there. Really like him too. He's trying to to maintain but add some of his flare. Really good.

I'd ask around, but from what you've described, you've had problems finding handlers.

Adolfo's is reallyt good. The best place to eat on Frenchmen. I was going to crown Melange but the last time I went it wasn't as good and someone else here had a bad experience.

I remember the first time I went to Adolfo's was on a first date, and it turned out to be a good choice. Had to wait 45 minutes in the Apple Barrel, but they had a good singing pair on stage playing old style blues, and lite rock. Drinks are pretty cheap, and the crowd is small. The restaurant has 12 tables, and is cash only, with an ATM in the restaurant(or bar, I just know one is in there just in case).

I had got the Veal marsala which was a special that day. She got Veal with Ocean sauce and we had a bottle of wine. With tip (also had escargo for an app) it was $106.

Without the wine it would have been 60 or so.

Good price, IMO for the quality. It's not too bright up there and presentation is lacking. There are no non-edible frills on plates, no rim garnish or garnish period.

It is a really good place and you will enjoy it. I just find myself going to Da Piero for 'fancy italian'. Even though Aldolfo's really isn't fancy, going there is an event. You can't expect a quick dinner as there is always a wait.

This.

I don't know about the hormone thing. I'm not familiar with how Neauxla's hormones operate.

Don't lie.


Adolfo's was great! Got there about 7:30 and got put on the list. We were told about 45 minutes. So we went downstairs and grabbed a drink and then walked around Frenchman and checked out the tables selling goods, etc. We came back and the band was finishing setting up so we got another drink and sat down. Before we finished those drinks we got called for our table. Sadly they put us at the one table that had a bright light over it. We kinda felt like we were in the spotlight while everyone else had nice dim candle light. Our waiter was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menu.

We split some mussels for an appetizer which were pretty good. I would have preferred them served in a bowl w/ more broth instead of on a plate, but they were still good.

We both got the grouper w/ ocean sauce. I knew that's what I wanted before I even looked at the menu based on all the reviews I read online. Sadly she wanted the same thing so I didn't get to try another dish. The fish was excellent.

The side salad and pasta choices that you get w/ you entree were both pretty weak.

No dessert.

Bottle of Merlot.

Total bill, including tip was $125. Would definitely go again.

Nice. Does this mean you'll get a third date?
