The Pink Adobe restaurant, opposite the San Miguel Mission, opened in 1944, the name inspired by the rosy glow of the restaurant’s three-centuries-old building. The lively Dragon Room Lounge, off one side of the restaurant’s courtyard, is extraordinary, even in the City Different. Trees grow up through the roof, a medieval-stroke-Moorish wine cellar is twisted with grape vines, and a monkey swings from the vigas, holding a chandelier. (He’s not real, but you wouldn’t be surprised if he was.) This is a—come see and be seen’ local scene, and the Lounge has its own dragon fare bar menu. Music ranges from Cuban to rock/Native fusion.
