So today I'm in Pasadena for work (all day meeting tomorrow, bleh) and a girls gotta eat, right?! Check into the hotel, dump my stuff all over my room, then BossLady and I start to wander around Old Town. In about 5 minutes flat we decide to give the green light to the first place we see since we're both starving. Turns out to be a place called Russell's on N Fair Oaks Ave.
I see that they serve red wine so I figure it'll work. Surprisingly, I chose to be a good girl and ordered the salmon with veggies (I know right, I can't believe it myself!). What's really surprising to me is how gooood it was. Seriously, I couldn't shut up about the salmon. So yummy. The malbec from Argentina was decent and BossLady loved her steak and fries.
If you're in the area, this would be a recommendation, for sure.
