    Adobo sets September opening

    AdoboThe new Adobo Grill on Washington Street downtown has made plans for a September opening, while the north-side Adobo location will become a gastropub/steakhouse called Pikk’s Tavern, Renee Wilmeth reports on her FeedMe/DrinkMe blog today. Adobo is transforming the former bank space into a “two-level open restaurant” with an upstairs lounge and two large private dining rooms. The grand opening is Sept. 10. The other Adobo, at 86th and Allisonville, will close in mid-August.
