We went to Abba to celebrate my wife’s birthday and had an extraordinary dining experience. Abba is in a home that was converted to a restaurant and as a result had an intimate feel that was enhanced by Middle Eastern accents, interesting paintings and large bar. Although we had reservations and they had plenty of space outdoors, which is where we preferred to eat, during this beautiful evening we were directed to a somewhat tight table near the entry of the restaurant. It would have been nice if management were a bit more accommodating in its seating arrangements.
The real story at Abba is the food. I can best describe the fusion as a combination of Thai and Middle Eastern and it is likely you will try several dishes and spice combinations that you never previously experienced. The outstanding dishes we enjoyed included the marinated eggplant and grilled calamari, the short ribs, the seafood stew (not to be missed) and the lobster and shrimp pad thai. The food is nothing short of outstanding and although creative and unique, all members of our party, which included two college age children, found the food both accessible and very enjoyable. Abba is a restaurant that is not to be missed.
