Designed by Henry Trost, also the architect for the Gage Hotel, in Marathon, the Paisano Hotel is a grand, though more Spanish accented, edifice that opened in the early thirties. Jett’s (named for the James Dean character in the movie Giant, whose cast spent time at the hotel and bar during filming) offers steaks and burgers but also salads and seafood. We started with lightly battered and fried artichoke hearts, which was plenty for three, or even four. Our charming waiter steered us to the halibut special, a generous portion under a slightly spicy cream sauce. Plump asparagus spears came alive with a splash of balsamic reduction.
