As the birthplace of Julia Child, Pasadena was destined to be a foodie’s paradise. With 500 restaurants, Pasadena is more than equipped to delight the food-savvy crowd, serving up diverse offerings that cover the gamut of food categories and international cuisines. From The Royce Woodfire Steakhouse at The Langham Huntington, the only Michelin-rated hotel restaurant in Southern California, to the 46-year-old Pasadena landmark Pie ‘n Burger, it’s all here. Dine on the culinary talents of tomorrow at Technique, teaching restaurant of the California School of Culinary Arts, one of only 15 Le Cordon Blue cooking schools in the country. Satisfy your sweet tooth with some See’s Candy – it all started right here in Mary See’s kitchen. Stroll from one trendy watering hole, like mega producer Gale Anne Hurd’s Vertical Wine Bistro, to another. From a quick bite to a dining experience, from the traditional to the exotic, Pasadena’s vast culinary scene has you covered.
