dinner recommendations in Pasadena for NY'ers
there are a few visitors from NY coming this week and need suggestions for dinner in pasadena. I think both are self proclaimed foodies and believe one of them works in the food/wine industry. one is a vegetarian and they don't want chinese or eat at a chain (roys' cheesecake factory). they want sort of a semi fancy pants dinner so taco trucks are out. i'm all out of ideas. help me please!
If you want a "semi fancy pants dinner" in Pasadena, perhaps consider:
* The Dining Room at the Langham Hotel - Chef Voltaggio (Top Chef) is cooking there until next month. You can go there, order their Tasting Menu and let the chef wow your food-loving friends. :)
(Note: The link is for the Terrace at the Langham, but you'll be going to "The Dining Room" (strange the Chow Place Link seems to be missing...)
The Terrace at The Langham Huntington Hotel and Spa, Pasadena
1401 South Oak Knoll Ave., Pasadena, CA 91106
How about Saladang Song for Thai-they have a great patio and would be veggie friendly. Otherwise maybe the Raymond?
363 S Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, CA 91105
Maison Akira? I remember one or two fine vegetarian dishes, although mostly favouring the carnivore.
