Review for: Pazo
It had been a while since I'd eaten at Pazo, so a friend and I met there last Friday for dinner at the bar.
Like everyone else has said, Pazo is a beautiful space. The wine by the glass is pretty fairly priced, but cocktails get a little pricier than those to which the Fell's Point crowd is accostomed. The service, for the most part, is top notch. Something to be expected considering Pazo is the younger sister-store of Charleston.
The food was fantastic. We stuck with tapas, as that's the best bang for your buck, and it IS a tapas joint after all. The torro crudo was delicious, a sign not necessarilly of a great cook (since it's raw), but of selection of the finest ingredients. The pork confit really blew me away, though. Highly recommended.
The atmosphere is the one thing that's always bothered me about Pazo, though. Even some of the staff that I spoke with admitted that the whole too-cool-for-school vibe is getting old. Speaking of getting old, cougars were everywhere, along with their male counterparts...it wouldn't have surprised me to see Dan Akroyd and Steve Martin's "Two Wild and Crazy Guys," show up.
