Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of their cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Mexican cuisine and drinks at Adobo Grill.
Adobo Grill grills up a menu crammed to the margins with upscale Mexican dishes. Start with an order of guacamole ($7.99), prepared fresh tableside, or opt for any one of eight succulent selections from the ceviche bar, such as the sashimi-grade ahi tuna ($10.99) or the baby octopus with fresh lime juice, avocado, guajillo, watercress, and potato ($9.99). Entrees include traditional Mexican fare injected with contemporary flair, such as adobo-marinated pork tacos, with ancho salsa and a sweet pineapple pico de gallo sauce ($11.99), or fire-roasted chili relleno filled with three types of melty cheese, black beans, and salsa ($14.99). Herbivores will enjoy the butternut-squash and mushroom enchiladas ($13.99), and the gluten-intolerant can peruse Adobo's extensive gluten-free menu for an entree that agrees to travel delicately through their digestive system. Adobo Grill's sexy atmosphere makes it an ideal place to linger over a snifter of one of the more than 90 varieties of tequila or sip a freshly muddled margarita from the mixologists whose work won the Best Margarita award from Metromix last year.
At the upscale-yet-casual Adobo Grill, chefs mix up fresh guacamole tableside as diners sip more than 80 quality 100% blue-agave tequilas and margaritas. Acidic citrus juices cook fish in multiple types of ceviche that whet appetites for tacos, adobo pork tenderloin, and tilapia dishes that reflect the flavors of several Mexican regions, including Baja California and Oaxaca.
Behind an expansive mahogany bar, bartenders muddle fruit in margaritas and mix pineapple-infused tequila with rum. On Thursday nights, a live mariachi band serenades diners, and on Saturday nights, DJs spin bachata beats, salsa music, and bird songs while guests shake it on the dance floor.
