the jus accompanying a gener- ously stacked French dip avoids the fake beef flavor commonly found at similar eateries. The atmosphere at Eddie’s is easygoing, with colorful symbols and posters pertain- ing to all things Philly hanging on pastel walls. Guests order at the counter and snatch their condiments and silverware from a tidy shelving unit. If you choose to eat al fresco, the patio offers a soothing environ- ment and welcomes canines with freshly stocked food and water bowls.u

of selling 1,200 tickets each year. Jim Schneider, executive director of AABA, said the event gives people an opportunity to try places they’ve had an eye on for a while, and entice those who enjoy the tastes to come back for more. Although trolley service is


available and will drop people off along the route, “some people do choose to walk the whole thing because let’s face it, it’s a lot of food and you’ve got to work it off,” Schneider said. Participating restaurants


include Kensington Grill, Bleu Boheme, Blind Lady Alehouse, Tao Restaurant and Thai Joint, among others. Coffee houses in- clude Lestat’s and Twiggs Bak- ery and Coffeehouse; bars in- clude Air Conditioned Lounge, Cueva Bar—which will be serv- ing samples of dessert empa- nadas—and Rosie O’Gradys, which will be serving as “cool- ing stations,” to allow those who are walking to escape from the sun, grab some water and rest. Participants can choose


whichever item on the various menus they want to sample— from entrées to desserts to ap- petizers, and, for the first time, three or four of the restaurants will offer drink samples, but only for those over 21 with iden- tification. Bleu Boheme, which re-


cently won “Best Continen- tal French” at the California Restaurant Association’s Gold Medallion Awards, will serve samples of Escargot a la Por- tugais—escargot in red wine with tomatoes, chick peas, linguica sausages and a bleu cheese potato croquette—just like last year, due to its great success. This year though, chef and owner Ken Irvine explained that Bleu Boheme will be using a different technique, grilling the escargot on a barbeque. “[The best part of Taste of


Adams is] watching the people smile and enjoy the foods, the area, being surprised by the very cool other shops here on Adams Avenue as they’re walking from restaurant to restaurant.” Schnei- der said. “I always say that the biggest joy for me is watching everyone have fun.” For more information, visit ad- amsavenuebusiness.com or macfar- lanepromotions.com, or call Mac- Farlane Promotions at 233-5008.u
