Granada

Granada
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

For months and months we looked through the storefront window and saw the renovation in progress. Then for weeks we were shut out by columns of brown paper taped to the inside. Suddenly last week, we saw tables and chairs being brought out onto the sidewalk and umbrellas being opened, and the door to Granada […]

Wanna Cheeseburger?

Wanna Cheeseburger?

Once again the year begins with burger meat. And a slice of…what? Emmentaler? Wisconsin cheddar? Or maybe crumbles of Berkshire Blue? Shall it be a bare bones classic burger or one topped with anything from fried eggs and french fries to pineapple rings and carrot strings? January 10-15 is the 4th Annual Cheeseburger Week, where […]

Cupcakes: A Sweet Valentine at Auntie Em’s

Cupcakes: A Sweet Valentine at Auntie Em’s

We have a loved one who is mad about red velvet anything, so when we say Auntie Em’s touting their red velvet cupcakes, and as Valentine’s Day shall soon be here and we might want a V-Day treat for said loved one, we headed toward Eagle Rock Boulevard ready for a taste test. Little did […]

Lincoln Pasadena

Lincoln Pasadena

Yes, I admit I’m one of the people who drove by Christine Moore’s new restaurant, Lincoln Pasadena, three times before I found it. My chef friend, Lisa, is joining me for breakfast and is looking for the location, too. The GPS on my phone indicates that Pasadena’s newest restaurant should be right here, at the very […]

Crepes de Paris

Crepes de Paris

Hometown Pasadena’s teenage consultant “DW” had a yen for crêpes this past weekend, so naturally she Googled, finding Crepes de Paris on Fair Oaks Avenue, just south of Green Street. We drive by it twice and almost settle for Amara,(which anyone knows is not settling), but we do succeed…by literally stumbling into it. Aside: We blame our inability to quickly […]

Ginger Corner Market

So taking the plunge, at a spot a couple of blocks south of Colorado and a handful of streets east of Lake, Liz took […]

Bittersweet Treats

Bittersweet Treats

Tucked in between a stretch of eateries (that includes an ever-present Starbucks), a block or so east of PCC, and across the side street from Samy’s Camera is Bittersweet Treats. We stumbled upon it about a year ago, looked at the treats presented on the counter and thought, these are different. We introduced ourselves and […]

Sunday Brunch at The Market on Holly

Sunday Brunch at The Market on Holly

If you look askance at those people who are walking into Ixtapa on Sunday at 9:30 in the morning in order to catch their team’s 10 a.m. kickoff—we’re talking American football here—then maybe a visit to Old Pasadena’s new farmers’ market followed by brunch at The Market on Holly is more your cup of tea on […]

Cheese Entertaining 101

Cheese Entertaining 101

Imagine an hour immersed in the world—actually, the smell and taste—of St. André, cave-aged Emmenthal, or “D. Bernardo” Manchego. Domestically, the names might include Cypress Grove’s Marble Mountain, Best N West Jack, or Italcheese’s Bufala Mozzarella. Nicole’s Market & Café is offering an early evening class on “the basics of entertaining with cheese,” helping hosts […]
