Favorite waiter now at Abbaye
I really liked the food at Aden, the restaurant whose symbol evoked the touch of God at 2nd Spring Garden. Every time I went, it seemed like the same quirky and quick-witted Hispanic(?) waiter whose quick and thorough rendition of the specials was delivered with a slight accent and some mumbling would wait on me and my party. I’m not sure if I was drawn back more for the seafood dishes or the lively banter. But Aden closed last month.
Since Aden closed, I’ve been to Abbaye on 3rd and Fairmount a couple of times and it’s my new go-to-restaurant whenever I want quality seafood, sandwiches, or salad. Today I went to Abbaye with my cousin and was pleasantly greeted by my favorite waiter, who remembered my food preferences and had the same command of the specials and humor that drew me to Aden.
