If you live in Pasadena or the surrounding San Gabriel Valley, it will be worth your while to drop into Vertical Bistro tomorrow night between 7 – 10 PM. Chef Laurent Quenioux has some new dishes up his sleeve that he would very much like to share with you. And for $25, you can taste a few ofÂ them as well as wash them down with some new beers and/or cocktails.
Not a bad open house for the locals.
Make sure you RSVP to the appropriate email address below to reserve your spot. I expect there to be some real tasty French bitesÂ awaiting you tomorrow inside the newly renovated Vertical Bistro. There is even a new “library” for you to check out. Now there’sÂ bookshelves in this wine bar thanks toÂ the new addition, which is a 60-seat dining room. The space now overlooks historic Raymond Avenue. This open house sounds like a great opportunity to try the renovation on for size.
Let’s start this countdown to Christmas, shall we? (That is – if you celebrate.) Starting this Saturday,Â the â€œWine Dudeâ€ over at Vertical Bistro in Pasadena,Â David Haskell, will select a different sparkling wine every day (with the exception of Mondays) to be featured in the bar and lounge for just $5 per glass.Â Be sure to use Haskell’s expertise while you’re there – he’ll be on hand to offer pairing suggestions from the barâ€™s new California bistro-inspired small plates selection, including rare and hard-to-find artisanal cheeses and charcuterie.
Also, if you’re not in the mood for bubbly, you can stop in any time at their Tuesday – Thursday happy hour from 5 – 7Â PMÂ and 10 PM – 12 AM, featuring 25 % off the bar menu and select drink specials for $6.
