Take-out food for Christmas dinner? I know that probably isn’t your normal tradition but THIS year, it’s definitely worth considering and here’s why:
Pasadena’s finest restaurants are offering amazing holiday take out options! Plus It’s no secret that these local businesses are barely hanging on and could use our support now more than ever.
Best Pasadena Restaurants Serving Christmas Dinner
Hi, it’s Eva Lin, Broker-Owner of Lin Realty Group here in Pasadena. Aside from real estate, one of my great passions is delicious food! So, I’m sharing my top 3 picks for amazing Christmas take-out in Pasadena:
Union Restaurant Pasadena
First up is my personal favorite, Union Restaurant Pasadena in Old Town Pasadena. Here you’ll find Italian comfort foods a la carte like – Beef short ribs, stuffed shells, and pork meatballs just to name a few. The meatballs at Union are world-class BUT, equally as delicious is their olive oil cake, which you can order from their Christmas menu. I’ve already ordered mine and I suggest you do the same before they sell out! It’s $65 and serves up to ten people.
Alexander’s Steakhouse Pasadena
Next, is @Alexander’s Steakhouse Pasadena. Alexander’s is offering a simple, traditional package that serves 4 – 6 people For $210 you get a 7lb prime rib with horseradish and au jus, plus Caesar salad, mashed potatoes, and mushrooms!
Arroyo Chop House
Last, but not least is the iconic @Arroyo Chop House. Like Alexander’s, the Smith Brothers are offering a large prime rib for about $200. They’re also offering a whole slew of decadent side dishes! You can choose from: Lobster bisque, truffle mac & cheese, and creamed spinach, among other options.
All three of these restaurants were recognized by the Michelin guide earlier this year. You can be sure they won’t disappoint!
I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful, safe, and delicious holiday season. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays from me to you!
