Good Steak in Pasadena and something for the Pescatarians?
Our son is a dedicated carnivore and would love to have a steak dinner for his birthday (a break from Turkey and cereal). He is a student in Pasadena and we live in South Bay. We are planning on dinner in Pas. tomorrow (Sunday). We will eat fish and shellfish. I did a search and found JJ's with terrible reviews. We would like to have a great meal as we do not eat out much at all lately. So it's a big treat for all of us.
I don't usually get steak in pasadena,but i have been to these places.
Ruth's Chris Steak House
369 East Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91101
Arroyo Chop House
536 S Arroyo Parkway, Pasadena, CA 91105
Arroyo Chophouse will be a treat -- Ruth's Chris is pretty pedestrian. I've never had a bad meal at Arroyo Chophouse -- although once I had weird service. I've had weird service and annoying upsell every time I've been to Ruth's Chris.
Make sure you order one (or both) of the souffles when you first sit down -- chocolate or Grand Marnier. They're both great, and I like to have a little mix of both.
There's not a *lot* of fish at the Arroyo Chophouse, but the lobster/crab entrees and scallops and shrimp starters are all good.
