Need something new!

  • n

Just found this board today... so be patient please! My husband's bday is coming up and I want to go someplace different. He tends to be very "stick in the mud" about the places he likes. We always go to Parkway Grill, The Water Grill, L'Opera or The Raymond (can you tell the grandparents a.k.a. babysitters live in Pasadena??) I am sick of these places and have never been that impressed to be honest. Parkway Grill has gone downhill I think and L'Opera's deer was very gamey...Anyways, I would love to try something different but in the same neck of the woods. (i.e. Pasadena, downtown LA, etc.) Thanks for your help!

  1. cicada downtown is wonderful. beautiful old oviatt building. i think the resaturant used to be an old habardashery.

    we had the chef special which was a 5 course meal including broiled sea bass, lobster raviolli, soup, salad, and dessert.

    the service was top notch.
