  • The Admiral’s splurge-worthiness stems from its unpredictability. Small and unimposing though it may be, you never know what will happen inside. The fare could be a one-time thing, a delicious experiment for that night’s small group of diners. Then, there’s the cozy bar, which might entice you to take a cab home. And on weekends, there’s dancing, an adventure in and of itself. Go, spend and enjoy. Xpress readers declare: It costs what it’s worth. — E.P.
