    Not in Old Town per se, but a few blocks south in South Pasadena, Shiro makes a darn good lamb chop.

    In the heart of Old Town, I'm pretty sure the stand-by steakhouses -- e.g. Ruth's Chris -- will have lamb chops, and I think Roy's has it on their menu (although I have not had it there).

        just watch out for the sauce there. shiro likes to drench everything in a sickly sweet sauce....so much that you can barely taste the highlight of the dish.

          Hmm, I think the over sauce issue might be a problem for some of the seafood and shrimp dishes, but the lamp chops do not come with a sauce.
