Eats: Favorite restaurant

  • It takes serious cojones to change a menu as frequently as the chefs do at The Admiral. For a lesser restaurant, the lack of consistency could be troublesome, but at the Admiral, the chefs’ consistency is in their execution, not in their particular menu items. Diners make reservations weeks in advance because they expect high-quality, creative (but not showy) fare, and that’s what they get. — E.P.
