Get Cozy at the Paso Inn and Steakhouse!
Monday, February 1, 2010
It's a slightly cloudy mid-week afternoon in Paso Robles, as I walk into the dining room at the historic Steakhouse at the Paso Robles Inn to meet with head Chef, Kelly Wangard.
The dining room is filled with the calm, quiet conversations of the early lunchers gathered around a table situated in front of the large stone fireplace. There's a comforting, familiar elegance about the dining area, like a fond memory of a large family feast you enjoyed at a favorite relative's on a winter's evening.
Chef Wangard joins me at my table, and fills me in on the menu she created for January's Restaurant Month, and the other exciting things she has in store for the restaurant.
Growing up in Paso Robles, Chef Wangard first became interested in pursuing a career in cooking after working for Lisa and Jim Subject of the renowned Paso Robles catering company, Cahoots Catering. After working at some of the most innovative and exclusive clubs and restaurants across the country, Kelly returned home to revamp the menu at the Steakhouse. Chef Kelly has filled her menu with classic, timeless favorites, invigorated with her own creative finishing touches.
