Published November 16, 2012 in the Paso Robles Daily News
A new restaurant opened at the Paso Robles Airport this week. LaGuardia’s Italian Deli is open for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, and also Saturday and Sunday for brunch. Owner Lou LaGuardia is serving gourmet style Italian sandwiches like ”Nicky’s” French toast panini – scrambled eggs, thick cut bacon on Italian bread with a honey walnut blackberry chutney, “Marie’s” housemade meatball sub with melted mozzarella on a rustic roll, and a breakfast pizza of salami or prosciutto, fried egg, mozzarella cheese, arugula, and homemade marinara sauce.
“Thanks to all my friends and new friends for coming out to the deli,” they posted on Facebook. “We’ve been having a great 1st week. It would have been nice to see some family, but I know that they will play the we live 3000 miles away card.”
The new restaurant is located in the airport terminal at 4900 Wing Way, Paso Robles. (805) 227-7168.
It’s open not just Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. but also Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome.

Preflghted at 0700 to avoid winds/turbulence over the mountains. Oops…Flat tire. Fixed the valve stem and got off the ground at the crack of 1030.
Over the Sierras via Donner Pass in glass smooth air at 12500. I know… wrong altitude… but as high as we could get before descending into Reno Stead field. Winds 15 gusting 28.

Tower at Stead
Off Stead at 1330 for Wendover, UT (KENV). Bounced across the desert at 11500 in continuous mountain turbulence. Popcorn Cumulus building up ahead. Landed early at Elko, NV to avoid T-storms near Wendover.
Over Winnemucca, NV
Super nice FBO at Elko gave us $.60 per gallon discount on fuel because we were enroute to KOSH.Dinner at The Star Hotel. If you ever find yourself in Elko, stop here! Great, homey Basque restaurant with amazingly good food.

Plan to depart Elko at 0 dark thirty tomorrow morning enroute to Grand Island, NE. Maybe even further.
AeroDynamic member Jack Liu is hoping to team up with one or more other pilots and organize a flying trip to Yellowstone.
Check also the Youtube video of flying to Yellowstone.
If you have not flown in the high country, we’ll work with you on your mountain checkout so you can be safe and have fun.
