There are reports popping up on Chowhound and Yelp that DISH Bistro & Bar on East Union Street has shuttered.
The restaurant’s website has been taken down, and the phone line is disconnected.
The eatery opened in February 2010 and pulled in some regular customers right off the bat, owner David Johnson told us in June of last year. We wrote then of a mini-resurgence on that area of East Union, with newcomers like DISH, Quadrupel Brasserie and POP Champagne & Dessert Bar all opening within a relatively close time span.
On Chowhound, commenter Bradbury calls Old Pasadena the “Bermuda Triangle of good restaurants.” What do you think? Is this yet another case of a good restaurant claimed by a bad economy? Something else?
The Dining Room at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena is set to become The Royce under its new Chef de Cuisine David Fau.
Fau honed his culinary skills under famed Parisian chef Guy Savoy.
“The Royce will be accessible fine dining at its best, and I want guests to feel completely at home when they walk through the doors,” Fau said in a statement. “We will showcase the beauty and complex flavors of local produce and pure ingredients, and invite guests to experience the gastronomic wonders of true cooking.”
