CloverEats: Valentine’s Day at Paesano
We’ve passed by Paesano countless times but somehow I’ve never blogged about them. It was a snowy Valentine’s Day, but we made the trek out Washtenaw Ave for a lunch date. The restaurant was mainly decorated for Mardi Gras, but there was a little table with some lovey-dovey pieces.
The restaurant is large, so different areas have a really different feel. It looks like they have a pretty large wine collection.
We started with some soup and salad. Nothing too special here. I did enjoy their warm bread, which came sealed in a napkin blanket.
Lasagna and chicken with plum sauce and kale. While the quality of the ingredients and the cooking were technically good, I just wasn’t impressed by the flavor. It is a generous portion, plenty left to take home for at least one or two more meals.
Dessert – chocolate cake! I was imagining dense dark chocolate cake, and so was at first disappointed when this light fluffy cake came out. However, it came with a lovely vanilla chantilly and candied pecans and dates. The toppings were fantastic, and I enjoyed this dessert much more than I thought I would.
Overall, a nice meal but nothing spectacular.
