WHY La Grande Orange’s casual sibling is a busy pizza specialist in the same historic Pasadena train station.
WHAT Gourmet toppings like fig and blue cheese or sausage with shaved fennel top chewy sourdough crusts from a wood-burning oven. Crab legs, salads like the Green Day and a few other appetizers complete the menu; plenty of beers and wines are available. Like La Grande Orange, flavors are often on the sweet side, and the room gets cacaphonous. But it’s a lively scene, and that crust is worth a wait. Also good for takeout pizza; the valet guys will watch your car while you run in.
WHO Families with small kids on the outdoor patio; festive groups indoors.
