Zelo Restaurant Review: Zelo is celebrity dining at its finest---especially if you're not one. This upscale Italian eatery makes you the star, bathing its customers in show-quality lighting and wrapping them in its luxe interior. The downtown crowds gather almost every night of the week to people-watch at the long bar, which is decorated with whimsical and complicated sculptures. The food is borderline, but no one seems to care; here, it’s all about looking good. Wood-roasted pizzas are a tasty choice, or try the affettato misto, a colossal appetizer plate that spills over with Italian meats and cheeses. Avoid the overcooked pastas when ordering dinner and skip to the seafood and grilled items. We like the kalbi-marinated, baked halibut with soba noodles, a dish that is more Asian than Italian, for its nice blend of ginger and soy.
