Pazo Restaurant Review: Tapas, full dinners and tasting menus for six or ten diners dominate the offerings at this dining-and-dancing hot-spot, masterminded by Tony Foreman and Cindy Wolf of Charleston fame. As with the duo’s other restaurants, the space is dramatic as all get-out; architect Patrick Sutton has transformed a former boiler factory into a multi-level tapas bar (think Tuscany meets SoHo). The dishes, drawn from peasant traditions of Spain, the Italian islands and the south of France, tend toward the garlicky and assertive. Grilled items are standouts, the tender-crusted pizzas are first-rate, and there are plenty of choices for vegetarians. Reds predominate on the 350-selection wine list, which includes Spanish-made house wines. Dress is casual, but many patrons are chicly turned out, and there is a dress code.
