I hoped to come back from my trip to Pasadena and Los Angeles with tales of the fabulous meals we enjoyed there, but alas, I cannot. Neal and I both came down with food poisoning and had to cancel our reservations for Spago and Via Veneto. We couldn't make dinners at Arroyo Chop House or New Delhi Palace. We did, however, manage to make it to Smitty's Grill, a nice, reasonably-priced steakhouse in Pasadena, for a nice dinner with friends. Not that I could eat much of my roast chicken, baked potato, and asparagus - but I really *wanted* to. Sigh.
Maybe next trip, eh?
