Savor the Flavors of California at this New, Pasadena Restaurant

Thursday, April 28, 2016 | 8:32 pm

DusitD2 Hotel Constance announced the debut of their new restaurant Perry’s, by Claud Beltran. Born and raised in Pasadena, Beltran is a celebrated Southland chef with notable Pasadena restaurants “The Eatery” and “Bacchus Kitchen”. Beltran will feature a Cal Asian inspired menu with a twist.

Perry’s was named in honor of Constance Perry, the Pasadena socialite and developer of Hotel Constance in 1926. The menu is designed by Beltran and includes items such as Pan seared Scallops with buckwheat soba noodles, snow peas and ginger carrot vinaigrette. Suggested wine pairings will highlight a deep and varied selection of primarily California wines.

“While Cal Asian cuisine is the focus of the cuisine at Perry’s, I like to mix it up a bit with influences from Thailand, Vietnam, China – Asia in general, yet prepared with California sensibility and complemented with French techniques” Beltran said.

Chef Claud said he knew early on he wanted to work in a kitchen. After being mentored by Master Chef Thomas Keller at Checkers Restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles, Beltran set out on his own. In the quarter century since, Claud Beltran has established himself as one of Los Angeles’ preeminent chefs. Of both Latino and Middle Eastern heritage, Chef Beltran was exposed to various ethnic foods at an early age. He is a foodie who regularly traverses the burgeoning LA restaurant scene.

The restaurant room seats 60 people in a combination of booths, tables and the very popular communal table. Most of the room overlooks the stunning Spanish inspired patio courtyard and fountain where you can dine under the stars.

Join Chef Claud and Celeste-Sheeley-Page for a very special “Just Because” Wine Dinner on the patio on Friday May 13 at 6:30 p.m.
