A Look Inside the New AKA Bistro in Old Pasadena

AKA Bistro reception area

It’s been about a month since AKA Bistro opened in Old Pasadena. There was a lot of excitement when we found out AKA Bistro was coming to town. The restaurant, owned by Robert Simon, is a concept that started in Napa Valley and had become Michelin-recommended for its fusion cuisine and extensive wine list.

And what excited me the most was that AKA Bistro replaced a long empty space left by the former Gordon Biersch when they vacated over 2 years ago. It’ll be great to see the restaurant patio humming with life again adding to the energy of the One Colorado plaza.

The restaurant has a traditional modern theme
