Ok, after trashing GARY'S La Fonda ( Which it deserved ), I'm going to Wax Poetic about Ajenjo. A fabulous place, great bar, outstanding food and owned by a Cordon Bleu trained chef! Happy Hour of course, but don't count on chips and salsa. I grabbed the address from trip advisor, but think 5 minutes south of Rosato in the twin towers.

Any idea what "Ajenjo" means?

Ajenjo: wormwood; It is grown as an ornamental plant and is used as an ingredient in the spirit absinthe as well as some other alcoholic drink.

I haven't eaten there but enjoyed some beers at the adjoining taco restaurant,Latitud 54'59'

I was curious too, so I did a search; Ajenjo = wormwood, absinthe

If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!
