Palomino Restaurant & Bar | Indianapolis, IN

Palomino Restaurant & Bar is a pretty classy place, yet it manages to not be stuffy.  They have locations in a few states, and I dined at their restaurant in downtown Indianapolis, right by Circle Center Mall.  I started with their Tomato-Basil Bruschetta and enjoyed it.  The Roma tomatoes and basil were good, and the herb oil and pesto were what really took it up a notch. 

Next, I moved on to my variation of Palomino Restaurant & Bar’s Sopressata pizza.  This pizza consists of Italian salami, marinara, house-made mozzarella, caramelized onions, roasted peppers, and green olives, but I removed the onions and peppers.  The toppings were all excellent – the olives were big and salty, the Italian salami was deliciously well-seasoned, and the mozzarella was rich and creamy.  The crust had some flavor, but I wasn’t a big fan of how thin and soft it was in all areas except for the very edge.  Because of this, a knife and fork were necessary to eat the pizza (I’m not known to be a fine diner, so that may have been by design), and the toppings could easily slide off the crust when cutting with the knife.  All in all, it was still a good pizza though, and a definite plus was that pizza is one of the cheapest things on their menu.  I am comfortable recommending Palomino Restaurant & Bar if you ever want to dine in a nice place downtown and still get pizza.
