Changes have come to Sancho Panza and sadly we will be closing as Sancho Panza Wine Bistro.

We are selling the restaurant and it will reopen in the near future under another name.

04 April 2008 - Ron Kleist

The menu at Sancho Panza Wine Bistro is based on Mediterranean bistro cuisine with a Latin American influence. Traditional bistro dishes from all around the Mediterranean that have been developed for centuries for their flavors and compatibility with wine have been subtly and creatively adapted by Sancho Panza to include the flavors of Mexico to add a new dimension.

The kitchen at Sancho Panza always searches out the freshest and finest ingredients available. Fresh organically raised vegetables, herbs, and fruits; free range chickens; the highest quality imported meats; live farm grown shellfish; and the freshest locally caught fish are purchased for our menu.
