ELEMENTS in Pasadena
When Onil Chibás opened his newly re-designed restaurant at the Pasadena Playhouse, he was looking forward to a steady stream of theatergoers as customers. Then the Pasadena Playhouse closed. Nevertheless, ELEMENTS is still open and still attracting a lively crowd. You can start at the comfortable bar where a nice menu awaits – try the sausage plate and flank steak and kimchi tacos. At table, start with the hearty oxtail tart or foie gras with jellied Sauternes. There is also a nice oyster and mussel chowder. Main courses include interesting creations such as game hen cassoulet with pork shoulder, monkfish curry and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” – a French omelette with crab, lobster and caviar. Service is friendly and professional and ELEMENTS offers a good, well-chosen wine list ELEMENTS KITCHEN is located at 37 South El Molino Avenue in Pasadena.
