THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Adsum Restaurant Review

: “I am here.” That’s what Adsum, the name of chef Matthew Levin’s winning restaurant in Queen Village, means in Latin. A force to be reckoned with while at Lacroix at The Rittenhouse, and briefly, a consulting chef at Rouge, Levin has his groove on big time at this eclectic spot. You’ll go for his sous vide fried chicken---soaked in buttermilk and tender crispy. Lighter fare in summer saluted the season with watermelon barely brined with Kool-Aid, and a slab of wild striped bass, grilled and served with chanterelles and asparagus. Or what the heck? Indulge in the Adsum burger, ten ounces of first-rate beef topped with farmhouse cheddar and double-fried duck fat fries. A menu of craft cocktails includes the Logical Consequence, a shake of gin, green tea, dill, fresh lime, honey and absinthe. The short and snappy wine list gets creative too, with the Grüner described as hitting notes of white pepper and cauliflower. All in all, a fun and addictive experience.
