This intimate restaurant from chef Bruce Kalman is a new Old Pasadena favorite. Kalman’s seasonally Californian interpretation of northern Italian cuisine results in such simple but exquisite starters as Black Mission figs with housemade ricotta, honey and rosemary. Save room for equally unforgettable pasta dishes, including a squid-ink garganelli with lobster, fennel, Meyer lemon and truffle butter. D (nightly).
