Birthday dinner on the eastside

unvacuous | Jul 26, 2005 08:24 PM

Hi guys - what started as being a small birthday dinner on Thursday night is starting to look more like a party of close to 20...(gulp). I'm in the Pasadena area, but don't want to do Buca's or anything really cheesy. If anyone has recommendations for a good casual restaurant (under $20 per head) with a nice bar or one within walking distance, that would be helpful. I was going to do Fatty's in eagle rock then The Chalet afterwards, but I don't think the former can accomodate a large party (their service is a bit off as it is but was willing to risk to be walking distance to the Chalet). Thanks in advance for any responses.
