Best Happy Hour


Don't let its location atop City Center put you off: Palomino looks upscale, but its happy hour (3 p.m.-close, daily) is a splendid steal. The house-wine and draft-beer selections drop down to $4, specialty cocktails like cranberry mojitos and pomegranate martinis hit $5, and appetizers run $8 and under, including Dungeness crab-artichoke dip, potatoes gorgonzola, and gourmet pizzas loaded with prosciutto, rotisserie chicken, and mushrooms. All told, your evening will feel far more lavish than your check indicates. ERIKA HOBART 1420 Fifth Ave., Suite 350, 623-1300,
