Cheap Dinner on Saturday night in Pasadena

katkoupai | Mar 19, 2007 05:52 PM

Some friends are coming from OC to have dinner with me in Pasadena this Saturday night. I would like to get recs for a cheap but nice restaurant, that is also vegetarian friendly, in Pasadena. We will be a six-person group, and a rate of $20-$30 per person total (including food, drinks, tax, tip) should be okay. Suggestions in Old Town are especially appreciated.

I am thinking about going to Cafe Santorini. I like the idea of dining on the roof, and the menu and prices look good. Plus, I have heard good things about Cafe Santorini here on Chowhound (

I also thought about the Vertical Wine Bar (, but I think this group prefers beer to wine, plus it might get expensive. So I looked at Lucky Baldwins, but it seemed a little too informal for the occasion ( I also thought about Red, White and Bluezz (, but there are no prices listed on the online menu.

Anyway, please post suggestions. This will be a belated bday dinner, and I would like it to be nice, without being too expensive. Thanks. :)
