ABOUT THE EATERY ON ALLEN: 488 North Allen Avenue Pasadena, CA 91106 Welcome to The Eatery by Claud & Co Catering in Pasadena. We are proud to feature a relaxed open-kitchen restaurant where once a month there’s a new theme of food. One month may focus on a region or culture of food and then the next month centers around specific ingredients indicative of the time period. We always follow the seasons and source local foods. The Eatery is an extension of our catering company. After so many years of catering and menu planning, we thought, “Why not share this idea with the public?” The “& Co.” part of Claud & Co. to us is an important part of what we do. Our staff has worked together for a long time and we would like to welcome you to join our “family” for dinner. We look forward to meeting you. Our unique dining experience will be available Tuesday through Friday evenings. We have saved Saturday through Monday nights for private dining of groups with twelve or more and private catering off site. ABOUT BACCHUS KITCHEN: 1384 Washington Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91104 How it all started... Our extension to Bacchus’ Kitchen started in the spring of 2014. As I drove by and saw a for lease sign, I saw the potential for further serving a great neighborhood that we were already serving at The Eatery location. We are also a catering company and service many functions on the San Gabriel Valley. Since that part of the business kept growing, it was difficult functioning out of a 1400 square foot location that was taxing all elements of the business.  Construction and design started in the spring of 2014 and completed 8 months later into was is now Bacchus’ Kitchen. The kitchen has proved efficient for catering and banquets as well serving the dining room and patio. We wanted a relaxed, casual atmosphere for the neighborhood with one of the other elements involved at Bacchus is our music program that features a monthly concert of top tier jazz musicians. We have made friends with artists from all over the country who have graced the Bacchus Live stage and we are very grateful. We are very involved in local charities and gladly use our space for events supporting many different groups. We hope you join us soon and visit either Bacchus’ Kitchen or the Eatery on Allen.
