This just in from Deeahna Arrieta, owner of the new Adama restaurant at 428 Chapala St:
Adama, vegan comfort cuisine, opened softly, not completely ready but just taking the plunge, on Thursday. Its an enormous learning curve as we learn the POS system and the challenges of serving and seating in this very unique edifice. Marsha and I have been so blessed by all of the encouragement and well-wishes that have come our way in these months, and are loving finally meeting the many of you that have been cheering us on as we hauled, painted, scrubbed, replaced, laughed and cried through the makeover. Our new motto: give us a dolly, a staple gun, and a few pipes for leverage, and there is nothing we can’t do!
The still evolving menu is completely vegan with an emphasis on organic ingredients. We have several gluten-free items in the bakery and are working on adding a few more to the menu as well. Also coming soon are more dishes that are soy-free. But our main focus is on animal-free. Come break bread with us and join us in the adventure! With the tiniest bit of prompting, the whole story of the way our lives and paths have been woven together comes pouring out! Breakfast, lunch, baked goods, espresso/coffee/juice bar Tuesday through Sunday, starting at 6:30 AM.
