Any recommendations for a place in Pasadena to celebrate a special occasion at lunch? It's not a large group (4 people), and we'd like something quiet and somewhat elegant.
I'm considering San Marino's Julienne, and Pepper's favorable mention of it in May helps. Also suggested to me have been Maison Akira on Green Street and Derek's (a.k.a. Dickenson West). Does anyone have lunch experiences at either place?
