Forget the JFX traffic for a while. Head to Pazo after work for $5 tapas and cocktails from 5-7 p.m., starting today. Festively called "Pazo Cinco," the happy-hour menu, offered Monday-Friday, includes chef Michael Costa’s Mediterranean-style cuisine and cocktails by sommelier/mixologist Olivia Boru.
Here’s a sampling: croquetas (crispy mashed potatoes with manchego cheese), grilled pork tenderloin pinchos (like a canapé), veal-and-pork empanadas, wood-grilled eggplant dip, and mini pizzas. To wash it all down, there are drinks like kaffir-lime-and-Thai-chili martinis, white-chocolate-and-macadamia-nut martinis, and spearmint mojitos.
Suddenly, the work week never looked so promising.
