Paisano's Ristorante

I went to Paisanos for my birthday and though our food took awhile and a plate slipped out of the waitresses hand smashing to the floor, I had an excellent time. They sat my boyfriend and I in the basement area where we were all by ourselves (which I thought was sweet). The waitress never left our bread basket, salad bowl, or drinks empty so the delayed entree went close to unnoticed. And she was very apologetic about the plate.

The food was wonderful- especially the canneloni. We took the leftovers home and reheated them after they spent two nites in the fridge and they were still quite satisfactory.

I think some of you might be a bit more leniant on the whole "poor service" reply if you worked in a busy restaurant. Also, the price isn't just for the food. If the same food was served in a place lacking the atmosphere that Paisano's had, I might complain. But I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the price wasn't a problem.

Zen Zero

Picky eaters, I see. It doesn't matter that it's not "true" Thai food... we're in Kansas here people. Don't expect anything brilliant to come out of the foreign food restaurants around. Example: when I first went to Zen Zero, I had no idea what to get. A friend suggested the Pad Thai. It was delicious. I've been to a variety of Thai/Asian restaurants since and have always ordered the Pad Thai. Not once has it tasted drastically different than the dish at Zen Zero.

So maybe you ought to taste the food without expecting to taste something authentic. I wouldn't know authentic Thai if I lived in Thailand, but I know that Zen Zero has NEVER failed to fill my stomach with satisfying food!
