Five days later, but still a fond memory. Last Saturday evening, I took my hubby, Terry, out for a light dinner on the eve of his birthday. Again, we’d recently watched an episode of KCPT‘s Check Please! that featured the Paulo and Bill restaurant on Midland Drive out west near I-435. I called ahead, since it was a Saturday evening and anticipated a large crowd. They accepted reservations, so I reserved a table for two at 6:30 pm.
We arrived early but glad to have called ahead as the only parking spots available were for handicap access (which Terry has temporarily until his back recovers more). We were seated almost immediately once we identified ourselves. Our server was gracious and knowledgeable of the specials and the menu.
For an appetizer, we tried the Garlic Bread Bruschetta that came with various toppings like goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes (roasted in balsamic vinaigrette), caramelized onions and roasted red peppers. Beautifully presented and delicious to devour.
While the specials sounded wonderful, we wanted some lighter fare so ordered Pizza Classica version of their Wood Fired Stone Oven Pizza with a couple of caesar side salads. The greens were fresh and crisp and the pizza flavorful.
We promised the server we would return, on a less busy evening for both us and the restaurant, to sample more of their appetizers, entrees and desserts. We enjoyed the night out and another great restaurant suggestion by Check Please!
