A new restaurant opened last week
in downtown Indy. Called Nada, it bills itself
as Modern Mexican.
The color and design of the place is wonderful,
a contemporary balance of coral, yellow, and aqua
with bright blue to balance it all.
I was thoroughly taken in by the contemporary
interior accented with more rustic touches
of texture and tiles. The seating is arranged in groups:
benches and tables along the sides, with banquettes
in the center and curtained booths along
one wall. It looks casual, but it definitely is not.
I loved my meal.
I had an appetizer of chips with salsa
and guacamole, dinner of grilled salmon, and
dessert of butterscotch flan. Yum.
I don't drink much, so only had a glass
of red wine. The food, while spicy, was not
overwhelmed with heat nor drowned
in cilantro; I was able to enjoy
all the flavors and textures.
The service was excellent,
almost embarrassingly so. I suppose that
was due to the place just having opened and/or
to my being by myself. I liked it.
I left Nada looking forward to my next visit,
wondering what I would choose for my next meal.
I saw people of all ages enjoying their first
visit to the dining room and a happy crowd
as I walked through the bar.
I'm not much of a "foodie" but I know
what I like and I liked this place.
