Another enthusiastic vote for Artisan.
For picnic items, check out Di Raimondo's cheese shop in downtown Paso - and whatever you do, get the salt crusted baguettes (trust me, get an extra). The bakery adjacent looked really good, too.
Picnic at Mondo, great spot, nice vibe. Calcareous has a crazy view and new tasting room with food, tho cannot vouch for the food.
Oh, my! Where to start...so many wonderful restaurants in Paso. Try Il Cortile if you want Italian. Santos, the chef, is a magician. If the Osso Bucco is on the menu, be sure to get it. Artisan is great, too, for innovative, approachable cuisine. Villa Creek is also one to go to, if you want upscale "Rancho California" fare (ie., heritage meats and game, grains and chilis) and a great wine list.

A great number of choices....Bistro Laurent is our favorite; along with Villa Creek. Artisans has a great menue but it comes with a noise factor. There are half a dozen others near the park; some that cost less than the top three. Roberts seems to be doing well as is the newly opened Estrella.
