Adamae is a dinner spot on Sunset in Echo Park with good cocktails and food that’s not quite as interesting as the menu would lead you to believe. The octopus and chorizo is a great combination of flavors, but is also a bit too salty, and the same goes for the mushroom kebab with pineapple relish. There is some good stuff, though, like the braised lamb shank or the whipped goat cheese, and strong, very tasty cocktails.
