THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Spago Palo Alto Restaurant Review

: When Jeremiah Tower faltered with his Palo Alto branch of Stars, who should scoop up this property, a lovely restaurant with several dining areas inside and out, but super-chef Wolfgang Puck. He brought chef Michael French from his Postrio in San Francisco and flew in Manhattan designer (Le Cirque 2000) Adam Tihany to bring comfort and bright colors to the low-ceilinged space. The bar area, called the Pavilion-on warm nights the ceiling rolls back-is a delightful place to snack on one of Wolf's signature smoked salmon pizzas while enjoying a cocktail. Pastas are also a good choice, especially the feather-light sweet-potato gnocchi with prosciutto. The main courses, most priced over $20, feature such favorites as roasted veal loin, quail and squab. The dessert sampler is a good choice. One problem for sophisticated restaurants in the suburbs has been getting professional waiters. They worked hard on the problem here and it shows: The service is seamless.
