Fashionable Lunch with Ma Mère

Yesterday I had a FABULOUS time having lunch with my mother... we dined at the Parkway Grill... one of our favorite places to eat in Pasadena, home of the Rose Parade... look at the GORGEOUS flowers as you
walk up to the entrance... 
inside the ambiance is lovely... 

and the cocktails are shaken just right to start to our dining experience... 
first a starter... special for the day... oysters on the half shell... 
sorry about this next photo... I was sooo excited to nibble my salad... I did not snap this photo until after a few bites... also let me tell you that ma mère and I split everything... so these portions are half of the normal size... this is their bibb lettuce, burrata cheese, sherry-shallot vinaigrette salad...
our main course...Pan-Roasted Salmon French Green Beans, Bacon, Mushroom Ragout, Red Wine Reduction with a lovely glass of Chardonnay... 
between our main course and dessert... I asked our FABULOUS waiter Sam if he would take my camera into the kitchen and snap a photo of food being plated... he said he would take me into the kitchen to snap a photo... sooooo... here is one of their gourmet pizzas being put into the wood-burning oven... looked yummy... 
and the preparation of their heirloom tomato caprese salad, prosciutto with balsamic glaze...
almost too pretty to eat, non? 
Nowwww... back to dessert... Crème Brûlée Napoleon Crisp Phyllo Squares Layered With Vanilla Bean Custard and Caramel Sauce... 
Everything was DIVINE... food, drink and the service was WONDERFUL... I would recommend Parkway Grill to EVERYONE!!!  I have been there on many occasions and it has ALWAYS been PERFECT... I leave completely satisfied with a smile on my face!!!  Thank you to everyone for being so kind and receptive to my photo snapping!

Oooooh and be sure to come back and visit me on Monday and I will tell you about the Pasadena Showcase House that I visited before having that FABULOUS lunch... the show ends Sunday, and I don't want to give anything away to those who have not seen it yet.

Bon week-end...
