Dinner at Adega Grill in Newark, New Jersey

Before the big show over at NJPAC last night, Rex, London, Maddie and I started off our night out in Newark, NJ, with a perfect Spanish/Portuguese dinner at Adega Grill on Ferry Street. We sat in our very own throne banquet quite near the two king & queen throne chairs pictured on the left. The four of us shared several appetizers: two different preparations of chorizo — Chorizo Españhol, Spanish chorizo sausage thinly sliced and sauteed with garlic ($9.75) and Chouriço Português Assado, Portuguese chouriço sausage flambé at tableside ($9.75)–as well as two different renditions of clams — Ameijõas Casino, baked clams on the half shell stuffed with crabmeat and bacon ($10.50) and Ameijoas em Molho Verde, clams in a garlic and parsley broth ($9.50).

Then I had the Rabos de Lagosta em Molho Verde — baby lobster tails simmered in green sauce, served with saffron rice ($32.95), which came with eight (8) baby lobster tails split in half so that there were sixteen little tails, too much for Roxy…so I shared with Rex, who had luckily ordered a simple salad. London and Maddie shared the Bife da Saia na Brasa — charcoal grilled skirt steak, served with crisp Spanish style potatoes and saffron rice ($24.95), which was plenty for the two girls, with enough left over to provide steak sandwiches for lunch today for Rex and me! Rex and I shared a perfect bottle of fruit-forward Portuguese red wine, and we left Adega Grill stuffed and ready for the big show at NJPAC.
