Restaurants & Bars

There goes the neighborhood

I'm awfully sorry to hear Ruth Reichl gushed about Casa
Adela in the Times last week. Is this her swansong
before she goes on to greener pastures? Although I
didn't actually read the review yet, I'm sure before
long they'll have it under the glass on the tables.

On the other hand, the review could be a shot in the
arm for Adela's, which sees mostly locals; in the
worst-case scenario, though, I see longer hours, new
decor, snotty waitresses, and a full wine and beer list
- not to mention higher prices. I'll be awfully sorry
if they take down that "Especial de hoy: Pulpo" sign.
