Diner bistro

Pasadena, October 21, 2017—

I NEVER THOUGHT about it this way before, but perhaps the classic American diner is the closest thing we have in this country to the French bistro. And the closest thing I found to the classic American diner lately is Russell‘s over we have supper before share another play here.

Booths upholstered in red leatherette , red walls with reproductions of famous paintings. We dined under the girl with the pearl earring and the milkmaid, looking at a group of Frans Hals’s customers.

I had a small Caesarish salad and this bowl of boeuf bourguignon, not bad. With it, a glass of Rhone. 

Russel’s, 30 N Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, (626) 578-1404
