Magnolia House Dinner-for-Two

Magnolia House Dinner-for-Two

The 2009 print edition of Hometown Pasadena (Prospect Park Books) describes Magnolia House (previously Magnolia Lounge) in these terms… The red flocked wallpaper, crystal light fixtures and low velvet couches pay tribute to the speakeasy (Pasadena’s first) that purportedly thrived here during Prohibition. In this more licentious age, patrons freely enter the candlelit walkway that […]

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 […]

Colonial Kitchen

Colonial Kitchen

It’s a building we’ve driven by more times than we can count and it registers fleetingly because of the name Colonial Kitchen rising up above the roofline and the Union Jack that flies out front, alongside the Stars and Stripes (well, to be accurate, they each take a corner). It’s an establishment that’s never pulled […]

Antigua Bread

Antigua Bread

A friend of mine who’s a chef and of Mexican descent introduced us to what has become one of our favorite breakfast spots: Antigua Bread on Huntington Drive just a bit west of Fremont Avenue. We meet one early morning and after receiving a strong, rich latte, we demur to our friend’s breakfast suggestions as […]

Tomato Pie

Tomato Pie

Ah, the classic colors that remind us of Palm Springs: white, turquoise and orange. After launching a location in Silver Lake and on Melrose Avenue, Tomato Pie has come to South Pasadena with George Jetson colors and 50s shapes and accouterment. Form and function! We ordered two of the “house pies”: Mr. White and Joe […]

Patakan

Patakan

Nondescript. Easy to miss because of the corner El Pollo Loco and Subway chains garishly grabbing one’s attention. Look to the right side of the parking lot, toward a flock of umbrellas. Beyond the “wall” of potted trees is an outdoor eating area that leads into the small, slightly dated, but very clean interior of […]

Re-Grand Opening of Park Bench Grill

Re-Grand Opening of Park Bench Grill

When we arrive at noon, the place is empty. Within twenty minutes, it’s filling up, salutations are being issued and returned, orders are being taken, and the kitchen has kicked into gear. Upon asking, we’re told by owner Chef Debbie Raney that the grilled chicken breast sandwich, the daily specials, and any of the fish […]
