When you're working with fresh, high-quality ingredients, you don't need to add much. That's the guiding philosophy at Adesso, where simple combinations of special ingredients coax nuanced flavors to the fore. In fact, with a gourmet salumi list, a selection of antipasti plates averaging three elements each, and a pate menu, it's clear that some of Adesso's most special dishes only contain one ingredient. Even the more involved dishes, however, revel in elegant simplicity: a panini sandwich might press braised squid between redolent layers of saffron, chili, mint, and leeks, or pair onion and broccoli greens with a farm egg and gorgonzola. Add these items to an extensive wine list and an endless array of spirits, and it's not hard to see how Adesso draws in foodies.
