Update- Pazo is now closed
Pazo is part of the Foreman Wolf restaurant group and located in Harbor East. I’ve heard nothing but great things about all of the Foreman Wolf spots so I finally made plans to check another one off of my list. I heard Pazo does a pretty great happy hour with certain $5 options so I made plans with a friend to head over after work.
Because my friend and I were planning on taking advantage of the Happy Hour Specials, we had to sit in the bar/lounge area, which was beautiful. The building is an old warehouse that was refurbished into a beautiful space.
We started with the Forest Mushroom Bruschetta, the crostini had a thyme vinaigrette spread and then was topped with caramelized onions and roasted mushrooms. I really liked how fresh this dish was. It was a great start to the meal.
The $5 pasta of the evening was the Orecchiette the pasta was tossed in basil pesto, broccoli, and chilies. This was delicious, I’m a huge fan of basil and things that are slightly spicy, these two flavors worked very well together. This was one of the meal highlights for me.
The other thing we ordered off the $5 specials menu was the Cavolfiore Pizza. Topped with roasted cauliflower, ricotta cheese, pecorino, chilis, basil, and tomato sauce. The crust was thin and crispy and the dollops of ricotta cheese added a nice creamy texture. I don’t recall having pizza with ricotta cheese in the past, but it’s something I will look for in the future.
The last thing we ordered was the Brussels Sprouts al Forno, while my friend loved them, I would probably skip them next time. The Brussels sprouts were topped with fontina cheese and then crispy prosciutto di parma. I didn’t love the combination of the cheese and the Brussels sprouts which is why I would skip them next time, but everything else we ordered was outstanding.
If you’re in Harbor East and looking for an affordable happy hour with delicious small plates, Pazo is the spot for you!
