THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Adega Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review:

The name comes from a Portuguese word for an aboveground wine cellar and, indeed, wine takes center stage at this swanky LoDo hot spot. The focal point is a tall, glass-and-steel room that holds over 7,000 bottles---from the venerable (1998 Haut-Brion, 1953 Mouton-Rothschild) to the eclectic (2002 O'Reilly's Pinot Gris, 2002 Artazuri, Navarra)---and nearly 50 offerings by the glass. Acclaimed chef-owner Bryan Moscatello, who learned to cook in his Italian grandmother's kitchen, dishes up inventive flavor combinations like a sandwich of foie gras butter and jelly or a lobster-and-ham strudel with sour cherry syrup. For something more traditional, choose the tender rabbit fricassée or the date-glazed quail breast. You can't go wrong with the six-course tasting menu, paired with just-right wines. Reserve the chef's table to watch the kitchen action. For a quick bite, the reasonably priced bar menu features small servings of fragrant duck consommé, crab-stuffed potato skins and, our favorite, hot smoked trout. One caveat: the young, hip bar crowd gets noisy late in the evening and the noise intrudes on the dining room.
