THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pacific & Vine Restaurant Review

: With its Southwestern emphasis, Cino Grille, Pacific & Vine’s predecessor concept, presented a decided Southwestern look, with art, colors and dishes drawn from that American region. The Southwestern touches remain in the restaurant’s new concept---Pacific & Vine---but toned down, with more of a California cuisine. The ownership hasn’t changed, just the California emphasis. Italian touches include bruschetta and spiedini, perhaps the best meal deal in the place. This can be customized to allow a patron to taste several, so three cost $14 and four, $17. Some seem to come from the tradition of skewered grilled food, such as the grilled chicken with peanut satay sauce. Other dishes would surprise natives of their countries if they found the dish on a skewer, such as the Korean barbecue skewer, both of which also reflect the myriad Asian touches on this menu. The food is decent, if never exciting. Salads and sandwiches satisfy patrons after a half day’s exhausting shopping. Black bean ravioli with roasted chicken and red pepper cream sauce is a hold-over from the Cino Grille menu. The wine list is dreadfully dull.
