On the doorstop to Old Pasadena’s shopping district, find this airy New England-inspired raw bar offering plump oysters, shrimp, lobsters and so much more. Its simple, straightforward but appetizing food—relying on little more than top quality ingredients—is a real treat for this neighborhood. The interior feels like a bright bistro, combining white brick accents, vibrant blue tiles and schools of decorative fish hanging on the walls. Start off with a seafood sampler, like “The Fish” for instance, which comes with an array of delicious bivalves dressed with a ponzu-citrus pesto. The entire plate is assembled before your eyes at the raw bar, which underscores the beauty of having fish flown in daily. The lobster roll is a necessary treat here.
