When you are an eatery located in Oklahoma’s most artistic neighborhood, bordered on virtually all sides by galleries, art studios and creativity, well, you’d better bring your A-game. That is exactly what Paseo Grill has done, and it’s exactly why the fine dining restaurant is still flourishing several years since it burst upon Oklahoma City’s dining scene. Artfully yet simply prepared appetizers give way to big flavors on this menu, such as the Maple Leaf Farms Duck Salad – mixed greens tossed with English Stilton blue cheese dressing and topped with duck breast, grape tomatoes, carrots and duck cracklings –  and the Chicken Saltimbocca – sautéed chicken layered with spinach, prosciutto and provolone and finished with lemon-thyme sauce. Steaks and seafood are skillfully prepared, as are the flavorful sides, such as toasted pine nut orzo and hearts of palm and artichoke medley. An award-winning wine list will certainly have something perfect to pair with the meal. 2909 Paseo, Suite A, Oklahoma City. www.paseogrill.com
