The Restaurant at JUSTIN, Paso Robles CA

This soup was very good, and I liked the bit of spice in there. I also like the simple, yet elegant presentation. I just wish the server had sloshed it around on its way to the table.

This dish was really tasty! The shrimp were well prepared and the tomato sauce was delicious. I was glad that they gave us more bread because the two dinky pieces was definitely not enough to sop up the yummy sauce. Noms!

This soup was really tasty and surprisingly light even with all the different toppings. The crab omelette was a winner and really took me back to childhood when we would makes these for days after a crabbing outing. The pork meatballs were also very good and added another dimension to the delicious soup.

Mmm, I love fritto mistos! Who doesn’t love a plate of battered and deep fried seafood and vegetables?! I thought the marinara sauce was a little lame, but I’m not gonna complain too much. 🙂
