From the Baltimore Business Journal (Trevor’s strong):
Following months of anticipation and delays, Charleston Group restaurateurs Cindy Wolf and Tony Foreman have announced the details for their latest venture, Pazo, which will debut in November.
Pazo — which means “noble house” in Catalan — will offer Mediterranean cuisine from select regions of Italy and Spain, including Sicily, Catalonia, Sardinia and Campania…
Menu items will include Neopolitan pizza, regional cheeses, grilled seafood and various small plates.
I think creative darlings Cindy and Tony fusioned this idea off Patricia Yeo, whose latest project was described in NewYorkMetro.com by Adam Platt, who one suspects spends absurd amounts of time doing unto himself as he would have others do unto him:
Now I’m not much of an expert in this things, but I’m approximately 100% certain that pazo is Galician, not Catalan, for an estate of substance. Catalonia is warm and cheerful, with lots of lovely food. It lies on the Mediterranean. Galicia is, on the other hand, cold and wet. It is on Spain’s Atlantic seaboard and its inhabitants survive on a diet of grubby shellfish and cocaine. I hope that’s what Patricia et al had in mind.
