Inside the new restaurant down by the Aronoff Center

Caught The Drowsy Chaperone on Tuesday night. Dan’s playing trumpet down in the pit.

Slipped over to the new restaurant by Chef David Falk (of BOCA) next to the theater—a joint called NADA serving Mexican fare. The interior is swank, but there’s a casual vibe to the place. Though reservations are possible, it’s more about walking in and sharing some food. I’d suggest anything with their guacamole, the sliders, and any of the mixed drinks on the cocktail menu.

As for the show, after the first song I shared a sidelong glance with my friend The Brown. She and I were skeptical. But the show eventually won us over with its sense of humor and quick clip.
