The Jackalope Art Fair is returning to Pasadena November 18-19. Held in Central Park in Old Town Pasadena, the fair focuses on handcrafted creations including art works, repurposed fashion, jewelry, home décor and other artistic finds and wares. The event is pet friendly so bring along Fido and go exploring. Although there are some food trucks and vendors, hardcore art lovers may work up an appetite walking around. Luckily, with free admission to Jackalope, you can afford to splurge on a meal at one of the restaurants in the area. Just check them out:
Central Park has been around for a few years and is a great standby for feeding a variety of appetites or when you get so hungry that you can’t decide what to eat. Within easy walking distance of the park and parking, Central Park’s location in a brick covered former warehouse is pretty cool. The menu is filled with pizza, pasta, sandwiches and entrée salads so that you won’t go home hungry.
Amara Chocolate is a little further away than some of your other options, but it definitely fits into the handcrafted spirit and is within walking distance of the event. Stop in for a sweet treat like truffles or churros or a liquid chocolate pick-me-up but also remember that Amara also has a savory side as well. Venezuelan specialties include signature crepes, flatbreads, tostones, plates and other sandwiches and snacks that will keep you full for experiencing the fair.
On the other side of the park, you can find many of Pasadena’s favorite eateries: The Luggage Room Pizzeria, La Grande Orange Café and Sushi Kimagure.
La Grande Orange Café is a diner meets steakhouse style eatery that includes surf & turf, short ribs, tacos, large salads and scrumptious deserts. It’s a good bet for eating with a crowd or kids, whomever you might be spending the day with. There’s also a full bar, should you need a little extra relaxation.
The Luggage Room Pizzeria is LGO’s sister restaurant, along with Otis Bar, and has gourmet pizzas that are a favorite with locals and perfect for any occasion.
Sushi Kimagure is often referred to as Pasadena’s best sushi bar. Open for dinner and requiring a reservation, it’s from Chef Ike, formerly one of Hollywood’s favorite sushi chefs before moving to the neighborhood a few years back.
Sushi Kimagure, 220 S. Raymond Ave., Pasadena. 626.535.0880
