How is Technique Cafe (Cordon Bleu School) in Pasadena?

Bjartmarr | Dec 6, 201110:49 AM

I'm looking for somewhere decent, under-$20, and relaxing to go tonight because I don't feel like cooking. The Technique restaurant in Pasadena seems to be booked solid for the next two weeks -- not surprising, as the menu looks remarkably cheap. Has anybody eaten at the attached cafe? Does it tend to be crowded/noisy or a long wait? The website mentions "daily specials"; does that mean that they serve entrees, or is it just soup/salad/sandwiches? Is it table service, or trays and a buffet line?

My other options are Larkin's, Blue Hen, and Casa Bianca; but I've been to those a bunch and wouldn't mind trying somewhere new.

Sorry for the totally clueless post -- I searched the board, but the word "technique" seems to bring up all sorts of unrelated posts. :)
