    we ended up at a local sushi bar. melangeinc, what did you think of the appearance?

      Is frances open late enough that one could pop into the bar post-show?

        yelp says until 10:30. oh wait, their site says closed Monday.

        what's the name of the new place that took over the space where baghdad cafe used to be? i'm going to the Adria event as well, and have been wanting to check that place out. i know it's not adria-influenced food.

          Criolla Kitchen is open until 11. So is Poesia. Neither is at all modernist.

              Several reports:


              A friend said the duck gizzard confit with red beans and rice was great.

                  A lot of experienced 'hounds don't seem to know this . . . click on the blue highlighted "Restaurants" link for Criolla Kitchen and you'll be taken to a hub page that usually has linked discussions and other info about the place. It's a link to this page, not just an address finder.

                    You can also click on the restaurant name under Places Mentioned on the right side of the page. Unfortunately there's a bug or design flaw that See All Discussions runs a search on the restaurant name instead of listing the topics with Places links.

                      The list of topics linked to the page is listed near the bottom of the Restaurants page in the section called, "dig deeper: related chowhound discussions". But it's only the most recent ones. And yes, "see all discussion" takes you to a search result, not the full listing of linked topics.

        The place that does the most Adrià-influenced food is probably Atelier Crenn, but they're closed Mondays, as are Coi, Benu, and Saison.

        Commonwealth is open.
