Restaurant Week - PAZO Baltimore

SteviesBaby Jan 26, 2008 05:53 AM

Hello all:

My happy co-workers and I will be going to Pazo's for Restaurant Week on Thursday.
I've never been, and looking at the menu, it looks yummy. Would you all be able to steer me in the right direction? Also if you have any recs on wine/drinks, that would be great.

Here are the Restaurant Week offerings:

Tapas:

Empanadas (spiced veal and pork in pastry with salsa verde)
Wood-Grilled Eggplant Dip with pomegranate and sesame
Pugliese - Rustic Bread of Purgatory
Sunflower Seed Tuiles
Shrimp with Garlic, Tomato and Chili Pepper

Dinner (menu designed to be shared—below is served family style):

Arugula and Pear Salad with Marcona Almonds
Wood Grilled Organic Chicken (Boneless Amish chicken legs, samfaina and chicken jus)
Butter-Braised Beef with Celery root potato puree and wilted spinach
Seared Sea Scallops a la Plancha (scallops with red chili flake, chickpea "polenta" and salmoriglio sauce)
Malloreddus alla Norma (hand-made saffron "gnocchi" with tomato, basil and roasted eggplant)

Dessert: Créme Catalan

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    We were there a few weeks ago, and I loved the pear arugula salad. My fellow really liked the empanadas. They also have a unique crust on their pizza, which we love, but it doesn't look like it is part of the restaurant week menu. but If you end up still hungry, I'd recommend ordering one of the pizzas...
