Spotted: Carlos Santana Dines at Paolo’s in Georgetown

The musician ate our favorite soup.

We have a longtime love for the minestrone soup at Paolo’s Ristorante, so it’s nice to see the homey dish get celebrity approval. Grammy Award-winning musician Carlos Santana and two bodyguards dropped by the stalwart Georgetown Italian for a bowl on Monday while in town for Wolf Trap concert. May we suggest the tortellini rose for a follow-up visit?
