Inexpensive catering ideas for picnic in Pasadena?

"In the past, the host has used (no longer open) Burger Continental..."

So, not to be mean, but the bar is set really, really low, huh?

My out-of-the-box idea is Little Jewel downtown. Chef Marcus will fix you up with some incredible creole cooking. Great food for a crowd.

Spicy Lamb Curry with saffron rice from Clay Oven in Sherman Oaks. Saag Paneer not pictured.

Orleans and York DTLA!

"Dressed" always means mayo.

I have never seen them put the hot sauce on the poboy, only in a container on the side.

How many Maude attempts?

I think that kind of reservation scheme is an insulting burden to the diner.

California CHUTNEY Tandoori Kitchen in Pasadena...anyone been?

Well, I have since gone to this establishment. My buddy and I had 4 tacos, a bottled water, and a mango lassi for $26. We sampled the tandoor chicken, tandoor beef, the cheese filling paneer, and a spicy chicken tikka all housed in their made to order naan. We mix and matched the chutney's sampling the cilantro, mango, and yougurt. Like chowhound Sgee, I too disliked the fince dice of the tandoor chicken and beef. The paneer cheese was just ok, the big winner being the chicken tika which had a nicspice. They have bowls and salads too! While it's not bad for a quick lunch, I found it all unremarkable, and instead dreamed about the drive to Artesia to get some really indian food.

What's going on at Murph's in Sherman Oaks

Looks like they just put up a sign announcing the opening of Downtown Johnny's, Grand Opening April 29th. Meanwhile, the sign on top of the building still signals parking for Mad Bull Tavern. The article in LA Eater describes the concept of Murph's as "rushed." I wonder what adjectives you could use for a 30 day turnaround? At least they are going to have the sound on for the games.

Does anyone know where the cooks from Pepy's Galley work now? I was just thinking how nice it would be to eat some chilaquiles verdes.

What's going on at Murph's in Sherman Oaks

I just drove by Murph's in Sherman Oaks on a Monday night at 8pm and it is dark and closed. The website is also down. Anyone know what's going on?
