Fine Wine, Easy Listening at Ada St.

Cheese, Salumi, Shared Plates, and More


For years, The Hideout has occupied a barren neighborhood within spitting distance of absolutely nothing.

Looks like it has company: Michael Kornick and David Morton’s (DMK, Fishbar) Ada St. opens tomorrow.

Gutsy? Definitely. But a record library (add your selection to the queue, jukebox style), cozy booths clad with old army blankets, and stellar food ensure people will be champing at the bit.

Or sipping at it. Pair craft wine, beer, and cocktails from The Drawing Room’s Tim Lacey with quality salumi and cheese. In the kitchen, Zoe Schor (Thomas Keller’s Bouchon, Tom Colicchio’s Craft) fries black-eyed peas, layers quail eggs atop steak tartare, grills octopus, tops beets with fresh ricotta, and crisps polenta spears and brioche donuts.

We’re drooling just thinking about it.

Ada St., 1664 North Ada Street, between Wabansia Avenue and Concord Place (773-697-7069).
