Normally, when I travel, I won't eat at the same place twice because I like to check everything out. But after full days of furniture shopping, I returned to the JH Adams Inn where I was staying and landed at Cristina Gray's three evenings in a row! Sure, the menu and prices suggest this is "special-occasion-only" territory. A steak dinner is $27, duck is $28, and the least expensive entree is pasta and meatballs at $15. So, definitely consider CG's for a special occasion. But don't overlook the satisfying and more modestly priced options like the salads, appetizers, and specials. I was there on Taco Tuesday. Tacos were $1 each, either bang-bang shrimp or steak. So with a generously sized house salad at $5 and three tacos, the meal was $8. The bang-bang shrimp was mouth watering. Another night I got adventurous and tried the duck nachos. A little soupy with the cheese sauce, but absolutely tasty and filling. In fact, two people could easily share a house salad and nachos, for a total of $16. Another night I added a piece of salmon to the kale salad. Delicious. The salads always were fresh, with lots of tasty touches (wonton strips and pears in the kale salad, for example). The salmon was larger than I expected and perfectly cooked -- not too wet, not too dry. Keep in mind this restaurant is in a converted mansion. So you can imagine the bar perhaps was once the parlor. It's small and an easy place to be with a few friends. There is one large high-top table that seats about eight people and the bar itself has six stools. Other parts of CG's are spread among low, intimate tables in a room through a doorway from the bar; outside seating; and the large room between the lobby and the terrace that also serves as the breakfast room for people staying at the Inn. Oh, I suppose I should mention they have an ample selection of liquor, wine, and beer. I definitely enjoyed a cool one every evening with my very appealing food. Go. Check it out. Enjoy.
