Barbrix, Palate, Noir or... for my birthday dinner

trolley | Aug 21, 201105:52 PM     13

my birthday is coming up and i want to go out to an adult dinner. this means no screaming child next to me (don't get me wrong i love kids screaming or not) as I'm leaving mine at home with a sitter. Basically I need a break.

I'm trying to choose between Palate, Barbix or Noir in Pasadena. I've never been to any of them but feel they're good adult choices... or are they? I'm located in pasadena so my first choice is Noir but their website is scaring me. Palate sounds good but looking at the menu the mason jar dishes are sort of confusing me. is it really ok to eat out of a mason jar? and last, is barbrix. the furthest from home which isn't a selling point to me.

any suggestions on these places? any other place anyone can recommend that's sort of within the same vein as these types of places? Looking for a place close to Pasadena so anywhere near by like downtown but not west of los feliz so we can rush home just in case my child starts screaming at the sitter. THANKS!!
