Need Rec For Mother's Day Dinner/Pasadena...

am taking mom for an early dinner on Mother's Day. any suggestions for Monrovia/Pasadena? prefer American, seafood or Italian. old school or new spot is okay. just don't want a 'scene' or anything too 'showy'.

  1. Umm. at this point in time, you're a little late to get a reservation unless you're really lucky or willing to take an odd time.

    1. At this late date, your best bet is probably to check to see what's available in/around Pasadena and then go from there.

      Good luck.

        thanks for the advice. i checked opentable, and surprisingly, found a lot of places available. any thoughts on Arroyo Chop House? they have something around 5PM/6PM.

          I've never been but Arroyo always seems to get rave reviews on this board for their great steaks (some say best in LA).
