The MIL is going to meet us "halfway" from Diamond Bar to celebrate her b'day in Pasadena this Friday. Recently widowed, she's been kinda blue and increasingly picky. Doesn't want Italian or Asian food. Seafood is not necessarily ruled out but she's been all but living on Trader Joe's tilapia if that speaks to anything.
Previous Pas dinners with her have included Celestino's (I loved it), Parkway Grill (too many misty memories for her now) and Twin Palms. She likes her Rob Roy and a good steak so I was thinking either the Arroyo Chop House, Houston's or Smitty's. The SO and I have not been to the latter two and are coming up blank on anything else. Help, chows! TIA
