Suggestions for business dinner in Pasadena or surrounding

Looking for good food up to $50/pp really with no restrictions. Out of new ideas. Suggestions?

  1. I'd recommend Crossings in South Pas but it might exceed that budget by a little bit

    1. AKA Bistro?
      Green Street Tavern?

      1. Racion, Malbec, Green Street Tavern. Although if you're getting wine, all three could go above $50/pp.

          Racion is excellent, intimate and a good place to discuss business. Good call, RT.

        2. For something interesting, I would look at Claude & Co.

          For something staid and safe, I would look at Parkway Grill.

            Good calls. Although I think Claude is not available on weekends unless you do a special event there.

              Hmm ... did OP say it was for a weekend?

          2. How many, and will you be discussing business or taking a break? The only Smith Bros. restaurant I truly like is Seco, which I believe is also the least expen$ive; it's rather small inside but there is outdoor seating. Cheval Bistro can slide under your $50 limit if you don't drink much and avoid the specials, and it's pretty quiet; the food is competent and the staff generally the same, and friendly.
