Private dining room option in Pasadena?

eu4ria03 Jan 3, 2011 04:49 PM

Hi all,

I am looking to host a family dinner for about 12 adults, a toddler, and a baby at a nice restaurant in Pasadena area. I thought that having a private room would be a good idea just in case the babies act up. I prefer American food. Price is not an issue as long it is relatively upscale.

Anyone have any suggestions?

    Celestino has separate dining rooms, but it is Italian (although they do have steak, seafood, etc.). http://www.calogerodrago.com/home.html
    Also, what is the name of the place that took over for Delacey Club 41? I cannot remember if they have separate dining rooms (I think I recall one from a long time ago, tho). Anyone been here since they changed?

      Are you talking about Cheval Blanc Bistro? I think it is operated under the Smith Brothers.

        I go to that street about once a month and I don't think that I ever thought to look at the name. Thank you for this info... if it is Smith Brothers, it is probably very good. Thank you again, calpurnia!

        The private dining room there was great, but is it still there after the remodel and becoming "The Royce"?

          Yes, Smitty's. I forgot about that one!

            Parkway Grill is another option.

          A number of the Smith brother's places have private rooms, and they are all very good. We had a large family dinner recently at McCormick and Schmick's which was very reasonable.
