A Brief History of Ada's.

Ada's Restaurant and Bar has been a staple of the Phinny Ridge nieghborhood for years. Nick Sfondouris started Ada’s Restaurant & Bar to honor his beloved wife. They were a part of the Phinney Ridge community for over 40 years, and have spent their time in Phinney doing their best to create a better community. Nick still comes by the restaurant from time to time, and if you're lucky, there's a very good chance you'll run into him, and hear one of his many animated stories about the rich history of the area.
