Gaucho Grill in Pasadena

after walking through the main drag and not finding much of interest, we settled on Gaucho Grill. i vaguely recalled it being a chain which can be a huge no-no, but hunger prevailed and we bit the bullet. the chimchurri sauce that comes with the bread was great. unfortunately they use horrible bread that is best used for croutons. we ordered the filet mignon and some chicken dish with a wine and garlic sauce. the chicken had a very boring taste and the filet was over-cooked and tough. the restaurant was nice and the atmosphere of being so close to the sidewalk was cool, but unfortunately the overall atmoshphere wasn't worth the mediocre food. i might have visited on an off day because i commonly see positive reviews on all of the gaucho grills, but personally i was dissapointed with their food.
