Here is what Los Angeles Magazine had to say in their April, issue: Pasadena Restaurant Week celebrates the city’s cuisine—which has been getting better and better lately—with discounted lunch and dinner options at participating restaurants.

And this from NBC-4 in LAHow do you know when you're a true-blue dining destination? Throwing a Restaurant Week is one good sign, but those deal-laden events are fairly common now in many cities (and thank goodness, too; saving money is rather great).

It's when you keep your Restaurant Week and you add onto it. You add on Cheeseburger Week in the winter and SIP-tember in the late summer and other special to-dos that highlight specific dishes, drinks, and yes, even the memory and spirt of the wonderful Julia Child.

And with that we just gave a hint as to the city we're about to salute. It's the hometown of Ms. Child, Pasadena, which is gearing up for its annual Restaurant Week. 

And a favorite from In case I haven’t said it (and Lord knows I ain’t getting paid to say it either), Pasadena Restaurant Week is a damn good deal.

Pasadena Restaurant Week is a citywide event featuring the cuisine of many of Pasadena’s top dining establishments. Participating restaurants will offer fixed price dinner and/or lunch menu items for visitors. Dinners will be three-course meals while lunches will consist of two-courses. Depending on the venue and menu offered, meals will be priced at either $27, $36 or $45 for dinner or $15, $20 or $25 for lunch. (Some prices may vary.) Alcoholic beverages, gratuity and tax are not included in the price unless specified by the individual restaurants in advance.

Pasadena Restaurant Week showcases Pasadena as a restaurant destination. The week-long dining event reminds Southern California that our local restaurants offer dining experiences to satisfy all tastes at every price range. Chefs and restaurateurs are offering their finest lunch and dinner dishes at special prices throughout the week.

Participating restaurants will be preparing special meals at extraordinary introductory prices. Two course lunch meals are available at $15, $20 or $25 depending on the restaurant. A three course fixed price dinner is available at $27, $36 or $45. Some participants will offer a special deal or discount instead of the fixed price menu. (All prices are subject to change, as not all venues can provide meals at these prices.)
