Palomino Restaurant Review

: Join the crowd at the place to be for downtown dining and a cool atmosphere. Palomino's tony décor, warmth and professional service draw visitors and residents for the contemporary dishes and well-poured drinks. For starters, consider crispy calamari, lamb empanadas or the signature chop chop salad, before indulging in anything from an artisan pizza with house-smoked mozzarella, black truffles and a soft-cooked egg to juicy rotisserie pork loin or braised lamb shanks with a rich mushroom demi-glace. Bartenders are skilled at mixing drinks and selecting wines, and there are dessert wine recommendations to accompany the legendary Palomino tiramisu.
