Crossings Restaurant, located in South Pasadena, has just debuted a new spring menu filled with an array of specialty dishes that use seasonal ingredients.Chef Kevin Malone leads the charge for the upscale suburban sit-down restaurant, where he curates refreshing, and creative plates daily. A classic American restaurant, Crossings is housed in a historical Edwards & Faw building, that was built in 1913. The unique two-story restaurant features a patio, two bars, an open kitchen and a wine loft between the first and second floors.
Focused on hyperlocal cuisine, the new menu includes Heirloom Tomato Salad, which is made up of burrata, basil and pickled mustard seed. Spot Prawn made with elote, oja santa and queso fresco are a fan favorite, along with the Al Pastor which is made up of pork that is sous vide in duck fat for 36 hours, compressed pineapple, avocado and a side of roti. There is also an Alaskan Halibut made with fresh herbs, olive and a homemade lemon marmalade, perfect for wine pairing from their unique wine list featuring local standout wines.
Other spring menu items include the Cauliflower, Pasture Raised Chicken, Pea Soup, Filet Mignon and many more unique dishes. Have a sweet tooth? Try the Pie made with strawberry, rhubarb and a vanilla gelato for dessert, or opt for the Elephant Ear made with fried dough, lemon curd and fresh herbs.
