The Parkway Grill continues to define dining in Pasadena, and beyond. Opening to rave reviews in 1984, Parkway has been a powerful force in the Regional American Cuisine movement, specializing in a seasonal, market-driven approach to cooking that incorporates diverse influences and classic French technique. Parkway Grill's exhibition kitchen features a fruitwood burning oven - one of the very first of its kind in Los Angeles.
Throughout the years, Parkway’s innovative chefs have showcased an intriguing array of ingredient-driven dishes. Demonstrating the ultimate commitment to farm-fresh produce, Parkway planted its own organic vegetable and herb garden behind the restaurant, which continues to thrive on a piece of prime real estate in the heart of Pasadena. Parkway is considered one of the best farm-to-table dining experiences in Pasadena and Los Angeles.
The stunning, expansive bar is an original from 1920's Chicago that was transported to Pasadena in the early 1980's - a handsome representation of the Rose City's Midwestern roots. Parkway Grill specializes in handcrafted cocktails. Amidst the dark wood motifs are top-shelf liquors, aperitifs, and a broad selection of wines served by the glass. Comprised of upwards of three thousand bottles, Parkway's award-winning wine cellar has been recognized by Wine Spectator since 1999.
