Paso report- Villa Creek:NO, Panolivo-YES

Villa Creek for dinner Saturday. The good: excellent wine list, wine served at proper temperature in very good glasses; dessert featured a banana split with sorbet that my wife suggested as she had her first on a date with me in 1977. The bad: underseasoned food- salad and my main both needed a lot of salt; my wife was served a really lousy New York steak with a large piece of gristle through the middle and our server refused to deal with it ignoring her first comment when she checked on us after we were served and then "attacking the messenger" the second time (Do you know about grass fed beef? Well, yes, thank you. She was raised in Wyoming and almost always has steak when we dine out.) offering to speak to "the kitchen" but we were never offered any options; the space is very loud with very high ceilings and dark walls with a rather unsupportive bench. I won't return as there are too many other options there with much better food and service.

Panolivo for Sunday breaffast. What a beautiful place. Best restaurant coffee we have ever had. We both had French toast with bacon and it was very good. A number of truly French choices are available and I can't wait to get back to try lunch there.

Thanks to the 'hounds at the link for providing many other options we will explore in November
