My husband and I are taking out his brother and wife for a celebratory dinner (new job / major life transition) and I'm looking for suggestions in the Pasadena area. We are looking for somewhere contemporary, and upscale (elegant yet still fun) where we can hear each other and have good conversation. Price range -- $20-25 entree is what we had in mind (although a little less, little more is fine if the ambience and food is right). Not something as stuffy as the chop house. It's for a Saturday night..
Thanks in advance!
