SolyAzul # 48 - View SolyAzul's menu

20 East Colorado Blvd Pasadena 626- 796-0919


If one were to give a dozen competent restaurant critics the daunting task of identifying the ten best Mexican Restaurants in the entire country, several restaurants, Topolbampo in Chicago, Maya and Zarela in New York, would predictably appear on most lists.  These restaurants are widely and justifiably acclaimed for taking Mexican cuisine far beyond the satisfying, common fare of burritos, tacos and enchiladas. Each, in their own unique

style, shows the delicious and complex potential of Mexican cuisine. Quietly, SolyAzul has opened in Old Pasadena and this restaurant has the ambition and realistic potential of ascending to the heights 'of these renowned restaurants.


If you peek into the kitchen before sitting down, you'll see a harbinger of your upcoming culinary experience -a half dozen chefs busily preparing individual dishes - the same frantic choreography of high end custom cooking you would find in any top rated French restaurant


The menu features a dozen entrees and another ten specials (entrees and appetizers) and of course the traditional favorites. The eyes flit from one culinary temptation to another - Lobster Taquitos, Sea Bass Fajitas, Shrimp Cabo, Coyote Chicken and much more. To experience as much of the wonderful menu as possible, the best approach may be grazing; ordering liberally from the appetizer and entree list and sharing. The food is unique and superb, and with the most expensive entree only $13.95, it's an amazing bargain. Even now, in only its first year, SolyAzul will change the way you think about Mexican food. There's also a great happy hour, Monday -Friday 4pm-7pm with $3.50 Margaritas and Mojitos and great appetizers.


Equal or lesser priced entree complimentary

The Kitchen  #14   View The Kitchen's Menu

78 West Union Street (corner DeLacy)  Old Pasadena 626- 796-9802


Things I like about The Kitchen:

  • Background music is Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.

  • Perfect casual/intimate atmosphere with red checked tablecloths, soft candle light and lots of natural brick.

  • Great Italian food. There are lots of original recipes on the menu - try the Lemon Pasta and Baked Ziti.

  • It's not a chain! In fact, there's a good chance one of the owners, Stacy Finn or Stephanie Jensen will be greeting you at the door or waiting on your table. How's that for old fashioned?

  • Prices are incredibly reasonable.

Holly Street Bar & Grill  #8

175 East Holly Street, Old Pasadena 626 -440- 1421


Now that the Blue Line is finished, it's a good time to refocus on one of Pasadena's favorite, family owned restaurants - Holly Street.


It is a beautiful restaurant, luxurious and relaxed, accented with contemporary art. The charming brick courtyard is one of Pasadena's finest alfresco dining spots. Plank Roasted Salmon, Roasted Duck and Southwestern Fettuccine are all superb. There's a good wine list and very reasonable corkage (1st bottle free, 2nd $5). An added bonus, at Holly Street you avoid all of the Old Town congestion and parking hassles. The restaurant is on a quiet block in Old Town's north east corner - an oasis really. It's easily accessible and there's 90 minutes complimentary parking right across the street. For those using the Blue Line, the Memorial Park Station is right beside the restaurant.

Most pasta dishes are under $10. There's a pleasant, informal southwestern bistro atmosphere and a very reasonably priced wine list.

Frank and Dean's Supper Club  # 47   View Frank and Dean's Menu

3768 E Colorado (1 block east of Rosemead), Pasadena 626-793-1847


Frank Abbadessa is a guy I think a lot of you are going to enjoy meeting. He's the man who has taken over a favorite Pasadena landmark - Baby Joe's.  Under Frank's direction the old dowager has been refurbished and renamed.


The restaurant is a tribute to that lost era of supper club elegance. This is a place the rat pack would feel right at home in. There are two comfortably elegant dining rooms each lined with spacious booths and highlighted by a cozy fireplace. Portraits of late great celebrities adorn the walls. Separating the two dining rooms is a spacious bar/lounge area where there's entertainment Wednesday - Saturday. For the entertainment schedule call

the restaurant or go to It's a place to go if dinner and dancing are close to your heart .

 E's Wine Bar & Restaurant  # 3 View E's Wine Bar's Menu

115 East Colorado, Old Pasadena 626-793-6544


First and foremost, this is a serious restaurant. E's features a talented young chef, David Dial, whose focused menu concentrates on classic American cuisine - recognizable and superb dishes. His sauces -simple yet tantalizing - enhance rather than overpower food. The New York Steak is served with a white wine, green peppercorn cream sauce; the Filet Mignon comes with a shitake and button mushroom sauce; the Rack of Lamb with a

delicious red wine reduction and the Ahi Tuna with a tomato and kalamata olive slaw. Each entree comes with a choice of two delectable side dishes. 


Wine is of course, a major part of the fun at E's. There's a great selection of wines by the glass. There's also a full bar with premium sake and sogu
