Fodor's Review

One of Pasadena's most stylish and sophisticated dining spots, Bistro 45 blends traditional French themes with modern concepts to create fanciful California hybrids that delight locals and visitors alike. Seared ahi tuna with a black-and-white-sesame crust, and duck with a tamari-ginger sauce incorporate Pacific Rim accents. The art-deco bungalow has been tailored into a sleek environment. Oenophiles, take note: in addition to maintaining one of the best wine lists in town, owner Robert Simon regularly hosts lavish wine dinners.
