College friend & Cafe Adelaide

hazelhurst | Dec 29, 201402:39 PM     2

Old friend was in town over post-xmas weekend and said it seemed he was marking off the entire Brennan Family stable of places. Told me that he had a "chopped downtown salad" at Cafe Adelaide which he described as "a wop salad without the real kick and with anchovy dressing but no anchovy meat." Said it was OK but he missed the real thing. Told me family circumstances dictated the places he went and, while what he had was leagues better than where he lives(outside DC) he seemed disappointed. I have not gotten the entire itinerary.

I've not had the salad in question but am tempted to try it for comparative purposes. I am not keen on the "space" of that restaurant, though.
