THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Adagia Restaurant Review

: University of California students have another great place to take visiting parents, who will undoubtedly be charmed by the adorable residential architecture and well-tended front garden, and the spacious dining hall's British décor of a century ago. Hefty wood tables and chairs cower beneath dark panels that soar upward to the 25-foot ceiling, made darker by spindly, haunted house chandeliers. A cool night is the perfect time to stop in---not just for the warming faux fireplace, but also for the dense, amply portioned meals, including a Caesar salad of grilled romaine and radicchio, topped with wide strips of salty Parmesan, egg, white anchovy and a memorable, restrained wash of creamy aïoli. Sample succulent dayboat scallops with fava beans just touched with lemon, butter and wine, or embark upon the enormous fork-tender braised lamb shank paired with cumin, served with a sweet polenta spoon bread and a piquant orange relish. The wine list is one of the most esoteric on the campus block.
