Arroyo Chop House Steak

DineLA is here, and the time to make your reservations is now! The food is waiting for you at over 300 different restaurants in the LA area, with three restaurants based right here in Pasadena on the list.

DineLA’s Restaurant Week runs from July 13 until July 26 and will see the best of the best in Los Angeles showcase their much-loved cuisine for a fraction of the price. While you could travel further afield, why not visit the restaurants that Pasadena has on offer?

The Smith Brothers, Gregg, and Bob have all three of their restaurants taking part in DineLA, and it promises to be something special as all three are top restaurants with reputations for great food, great service, and wonderful ambiance.

Arroyo Chop House is a great option for DineLA attendees meat lovers. This is one of the few restaurants in these parts which serves extra fine grades, cuts, and preparation of beef. Renowned for its delicious preparation of prime beef, the restaurant serves only the highest quality meat using only Prime Beef, which is so exclusive that only 2% of the beef production is graded U.S.D.A. Prime, compared to U.S.D.A. Choice which represents 70% of the beef market. Besides the range of steaks on offer, the restaurant has become known for its sublime cocktail pairings served straight from the in-house bar. For this event, they offer a $49 selection of great foods (an extra $30 for the wine pairing) for this 3-course meal that includes foods like Lobster Bisque, Prime Petit Filet Mignon, and Chocolate or Grand Marnier Souffle. See their menu selections here.

Smitty's Grill Double Dark Chocolate Cake

Choose from Filet Mignon Burger, Chicken Picatta, and Sautéed Idaho Rainbow Trout with a choice of The Grill Mixed Green Salad, and the Soup of the Day appetizers for their lunch meals costing a reasonable $25 per person, and for dinner the $39 per person menu selections include Herb Crusted Lake Superior Whitefish, with Caesar Salad and Soup of the Day as appetisers for this special DineLA event dinner.

Last but not least is the Smith Brothers’ Parkway Grill which has served Pasadena residents since 1984. Its famed wood-fired oven brings out mouthwatering flavors from each dish while vegetables come straight from the restaurant’s very own organic garden. The DineLA menu will include a $25 lunch with selections that include Parkway’s signature black bean soup, tomatillos, crème Fraiche for the first course and a second course that will include selections like the open-faced culotte sandwich, with heirloom tomato, point Reyes, arugula, grilled rustic bread, romesco, and a side of onion rings. They will also offer a $49 3 course dinner menu which will include foods like grilled octopus, savory Catalan picada emulsion, and grilled filet mignon, with rosemary fingerling potatoes, agridulce of wild mushrooms, and caramelized shallots. See their full menu selections here.

No matter which Smith Brothers’ restaurant you go for during DineLA, you won’t leave disappointed. Since you’re feeling adventurous, why not try out all three?
