536 S. Arroyo Pkwy.
Pasadena, CA, 91105, United States
TEL: (626) 577-7463

This upscale steakhouse from the Smith brothers–Bob and Gregg–resides on Pasadena’s Arroyo Parkway and specializes in house-aged, hand-cut Prime beef. Available cuts include the filet mignon, Porterhouse, and cowboy rib-eye. Beef-free options include the tableside Caesar salad for two, Australian lobster tail, and double-cut lamb chops. Everything may be paired with sides like mac and cheese with Black Forest ham, and Lyonnaise potatoes. Pastry chef Joey Martinez contributes classic American desserts like butterscotch pudding and New York cheesecake. A pianist provides live music, and the restaurant's sign, glass lanterns, and dark-wood interior reference Pasadena’s Craftsman heritage.

Insider Tip:

Drive east on nearby California Boulevard and connect with Caltech, a walkable campus that once hosted visiting professor Albert Einstein and serves as a de facto feeder system for NASA’s nearby Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
