The Short Order
Tucked away inside the Inn on the Alameda, the Agoyo Lounge is easy to miss. But it’s worth seeking out. This place is on the upswing, and it could use an increase in local patronage. Working out of a small kitchen, chef Jen Doughty has put together a creative menu whose main strengths are appetizers and salads. Some of the entrees fall short, and the menu could benefit from a more extensive list of desserts. Recommended: empanadas (choice of three fillings), sweet-onion puff pastry with smoked salmon, duck confit & spinach salad, and the Alsatian tart of the day.
