Adam Erace returns to Jose Pistola’s to try the menu of Adan Trinidad. The former El Vez kitchen-hand has returned to Philadelphia after a stint in New York and he has Pistola’s firing.
Some of Trinidad’s plates, like the glistening tiradito of raw fluke splashed with yuzu and freckled with togarashi, made me want to take a sledgehammer to the overbearing sound system, twist 200-watt bulbs into the overhead sockets and lay a white cloth over my table. Fruity, spicy, sour and fresh, the food demanded a bit more attention.
