The great thing about living in Pasadena is the abundance of restaurants we have to choose from, each offering the finest culinary experience. And, when these restaurants get together and offer us suggested 3-course meals at very reasonable prices… well… that just makes my day!
Pasadena Restaurant Week runs Sunday, March 25, 2012 to Friday, March 30th 2012
In all, nearly 50 of Pasadena’s best restaurants are offering amazing meals and deals during the 2012 Pasadena Restaurant Week. This year’s participating restaurants are offering fixed price dinner and/or lunch menu items for visitors.
Dinners are three-course meals while lunches consist of two-courses. Depending on the venue and menu offered, meals are priced at $15, $20 or $25 for lunch or $26, $35 or $44 for dinner. (Some prices may vary.) Alcoholic beverages, gratuity and tax were not included in the price unless specified by the individual restaurants in advance. Some restaurants are also offering other special deals during Pasadena Restaurant Week.
