Adams Avenue Grill Restaurant Review

: This airy and bright eatery is easy on the eyes with its undulating swaths of red and orange cloth ribbons that float along the ceiling. The menu offers American comfort foods, along with dishes featuring Asian, Thai, Indian, Mexican and Italian influences. For breakfast, we suggest the lavender-infused crème brûlée French toast with homemade bread and seasonal berry compote. Lunch calls for pulled pork barbecue sandwiches. A nice start to dinner is the Pacific crab and scallop meatball with coconut dipping sauce. Soups are also a specialty, all made fresh and in-house. We like the corn chowder, especially paired with crab cakes. The house favorite, a slow-braised Yankee pot roast --- available from 5 p.m. until it's gone --- is served with carrots and a mound of old-fashioned mashed potatoes. Although the meat was tender, the flavor was a little bland by our standards. There are quite a few pasta choices, topped with the expected sauces: pesto, marinara and béchamel. The big dessert draw is the Titanic cookie (a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie that weighs in at a half-pound, served with two scoops of vanilla ice cream), but we went for the pecan-caramel triangle, a warm pecan tart drizzled with caramel and topped with vanilla ice cream.
