Authentic Portuguese FoodIf you don't have the money to travel to Portugal, then Pao is the next best thing. Having been raised on Portuguese food, I can say that my appetizer and entree selections were delicious and pretty much typical of good home Portuguese cooking. The added flair came from the presentation, the delicious bread (cleverly served in a flower pot), the quaint ambiance and the excellent service.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMNY Authentic Portuguese, Finally!My Portuguese boyfriend and I had a cozy Saturday night date at Pao. He absolutely loved it. He felt home from the second he looked at the bar selection. I'm a foodie, and I also enjoyed Pao's menu very much. Everything we ordered was delicious and well presented. The wine selection was also noteworthy.
Point is, we loved it, and you probably will, too!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Seafood options!I really loved my experience dining at Pao. The Squid salad was light and delicious!
