Place for Rehearsal Brunch in Pasadena?

I am trying to help an out-of-town friend with her wedding. I need help finding a place for a rehearsal lunch in August (probably too hot for outdoors). Suggestions please...

    I had lunch this week at Firefly Bistro and it was really nice and the food was great...but it was an outdoor patio. It was covered and they have lots of fans, so it was actually quite comfortable considering it was 95 degrees out.

      If you don't need something prim & proper like the Raymond, take a look at Saladang Song on Fair Oaks. They serve refined (but still fairly authentic) Thai food a large modern space...very nice atmosphere.

      The older sister restaurant Saladang is next door & is not as suitable...so make sure you book the correct one.

        While I've never been for brunch (only dinner), I hear Maison Akira on Green Street is really good. It's Japanese-French.

          I wholeheartedly agree with this suggestion. One of the best restaurants around. I've gone to many a brunch and dinner here, and it has always been elegant and delicious.

          How big is your group?

          If not too big, maybe consider Bistro de la Gare. http://www.bistrodelagare.com/
