Adolfo Garcia closes Primitivo

The OC Haley restaurant closes after two years



Chef-restaurateur Adolfo Garcia' s hearth-focused restaurant Primitivo served its final meals May 20. The restaurant opened two years ago on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard, one of a string of new businesses on the developing Central City stretch, including Casa Borrega, Dryades Public Market and the outdoor food hall Roux Carre.

  Primitivo used a special oven to roast, smoke and grill meats, and the menu included larger cuts of meat served on family-style platters. Chef Nick Martin's cooking garnered accolades, and critics lauded the chefs' use of fire and the restaurant's rustic ethos.
