Dinner at hotel abrego

We came in for dinner on Mother's Day. Anna was so great! She really made the evening extra special for my family. The food was good and Anna made me the best margarita I have never had.

I met a friend at Cafe Abrego for appetizers. They were SO delicious! The crab cakes, asparagus, and all of the other small plates were delicious, innovative, and reasonably priced. They have a relatively new chef and I am happy to get the word out that this is a great place for a glass of wine and delicious meal.

This was about a block away from our hotel. The staff was so nice. We had a lovely chicken Caesar salad. They have a full bar and they serve Coke products. Nice fireplace; excellent menu. We'll go back for sure.
