The Editors
Written by The Editors

Inspired by travel and a passion for the traditions of ­Italian culture, Pasto’s Grill follows the Italian principle of proper execution of simple recipes featuring the freshest seasonal ingredients available.

The Scene

Pasto’s Grill is a chic bistro in a casually elegant environment. The dining room is built in a half-circle, decorated in warm and calming shades, with white linen tables surrounded by wine racks and period posters. Service is friendly and professional.

Menu Highlights

The kitchen is literally the hub of the restaurant. All meals are passionately made to order by the dedicated culinary brigade. Traditional recipes are the heart of both the lunch and dinner menus, with occasional nods to global and modern sensitivities. For example, all pasta dishes can be prepared with gluten-free noodles. Menu items are all made to order.

The antipasti menu offers plenty of choice, including Antipasto Platters for two or more, with Chef’s selection of cured meats and local cheeses with roasted peppers, olives and garlic crostini, or the Marco Polo, with wonton shrimp, calamari fritti, grilled shrimp and crab-filled mushrooms. Hand-made, thin crust pizzas include classics such as the San ­Michelle, with pesto, garlic, sliced tomatoes, grilled chicken, spinach, goat cheese and mozzarella. Other recommendations include:

• Veal Romano, tender provimi veal scallopini with wild mushrooms in a cognac-peppercorn sauce;

• Grilled Vegetable Napoleon, stacked vegetables, portobello mushroom & melted provolone served with orzo-farro pilaf.
