Shiro v. Parkway Grill v. Bistro K

Planning a dinner for two tomorrow, and will bring a great bottle of red wine. Just want to go where the best food is; decor, service, price all secondary. Which of these three would you recommend? Other suggestions around Pasadena appreciated also. Thanks!

    Bistro K. Easy.

      That would be my choice of the three also. Bistro K.

        Is there a review of Bistro K on the blog? I see Bistro 45 but not Bistro K.

          My bad. I read the thread wrong! Not been to Bistro K yet. I definately have heard great things about it, very creative. I have been to Shiro and Parkway, both are good but not nearly as creative as Bistro K. Check out their menu on-line.

        I would say Parkway or Bistro K...definitely think the latter would be a more adventurous choice. Also, could be hard to get a reservation at Parkway if you are going tomorrow. They book up quickly.

        Shiro can be on/off, so I wouldn't risk it.

          I can't speak to the other options, but I have found Parkway Grill to be dull and kind of corporate, both in terms of the food and decor. Wouldn't be my choice unless you're hosting a work function.

            Bistro K seems like the overwhelming favorite. Thanks for your input. Will be going there tonight!
