SF 'hound seeks recs for Silverlake and Pasadena

Adam Paul | Aug 4, 2004 06:02 PM

Hi folks,

My SO & I will be spending this Fri-Mon in Silverlake and Pasadena and naturally, will want to eat :) We like pretty much anything, but would prefer "unusual" foods or especially creative places or uniquely-SoCal joints ("usual" for us is Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, & Italian). I expect we'll be eating most of our meals out, so bring on the suggestions! We don't mind paying for quality, but I wouldn't want dinner to be much more than $75'ish including a couple drinks. Don't need anything fancy - we prefer neighborhood joints over uber-hip flavors of the week.

I've been trolling through the LA board and Zagat and places that sound potentially interesting thus far are:

Pasadena:
Cafe Atlantic
Smitty's
Nonya's
Maison Akira
Kuala Lumpur
Bistro 561
Bistro 45

Silverlake:
The Coffee Table
Sushi Ike
Saito
Shibucho
Gingergrass? (mixed reviews)

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
_Adam
