Arroyo Chop House - Pasadena
Smith Brothers Restaurant Group founders Bob and Gregg Smith are behind such popular Southern California eateries as Seco New American, Parkway Grill, Smitty's Grill and Arroyo Chop House.
Arroyo is especially a favorite with Pasadena's steak enthusiasts. It offers all the elements of a classic steakhouse, and USDA prime beef--which is aged and hand-cut daily--shares the stage with lobster, tuna, and other fresh seafood delivered daily. The restaurant's decor was inspired by the arts & crafts architectural style for which Pasadena is famous, and is clad in rich mahogany.
Arroyo steak menu highlights range from a 26-ounce cowboy ribeye to porterhouse or tomahawk for two. Diners will also find Japanese Wagyu on the menu that include a New York strip, filet and ribeye. Non-steak dishes range from Alaskan king crab legs to marinated chicken breast. Traditional steakhouse side dishes include creamed spinach, baked potatoes, asparagus spears with Hollandaise sauce and Arroyo Chop House's famous onion rings.
