|Hello, you sexy Tomahawk chop|
To be fair, the menu isn't an exact replica, but it is laid out the same, and there are a few dishes (lobster bisque, sauteed mushrooms) that remind us of Colicchio's. Not that we're complaining. With grain-fed Prime USDA beef from Pennsylvania, Australian Wagyu, and cuts like a Wisconsin veal chop and braised Berkshire pork, this is a great meaty direction for Pasadena, which has its share of steakhouses but none as contemporary, seasonal and/or non-chain. Check out the full menu below. The Royce Steakhouse (everyone will probably shorten it to this anyway) opens tonight at 5 PM (1401 S. Oak Knoll Ave.; 626-585-6410).
