Old Town Pasadena is No Longer a Food Tourist Trap


Innovative chefs and intriguing concepts have jumpstarted Old Town Pasadena’s food scene

November 11, 2014 Valentina Silva
Old Town Pasadena has never—at least in recent memory—boasted much of a food scene. Sure, it has always had too many restaurants to keep track of, but despite a few gems, most of the shopping district’s culinary options have skewed “touristy.” Until now. For the past few years, innovative chefs and intriguing food concepts have steadily infiltrated Old Town, making it yet another worthy L.A. food destination. And, hey, it’s even Gold Line accessible.
Here are some of our favorite new breed eating and drinking spots in Old Town Pasadena:


Chef Bruce Kalman’s Northern-Italian-via-California menu gives Old Town exactly what it’s been missing—seasonal, market-driven dishes made with the simplicity that only a perfectionist could execute. Much more casual than most of Pasadena’s other fine dining options, the small restaurant hosts a lively atmosphere, encouraged by a good wine list and vibrant dishes, like succulent meatballs trumped up with lardo and caper berries, sultry porchetta served with heirloom potatoes and salsa verde, and a spaghetti alla chitara that’s just about perfect. 37 E. Union Street, 626-795-5841
