Monty's in Pasadena closing...
It may be a bit retro, well I guess it never really chaged. I suppose I will miss the red pleather booths and Red Skeleton painitngs. I will miss the aged waitresses who have been working there since short skirts was the uniform of choice. Unfortunatley, the well cooked steaks and fish, simple side dishes, classic steakhouse fare and the rat pack sized bourbons, scothes and martini's have met their maker. It may not be Cut and it may not be Lucques but it was a place where you felt welcomed and comfortable even if it was your first time. Sometimes a good dining experience transcends the trendy. Thank you Monty's. I will see you one last time.
BTW it closes June 23rd.
