I know it has been forever and a day since I last wrote, but figured I’d share some information that is now making the rounds.
Louise’s Trattoria, the Italian eatery at the corner of Fair Oaks and Colorado, will become an 800 Degrees, a create-your-own pizza restaurant. The concept is not new to Pasadena, but judging by the lines at a competitor down the street — Blaze Pizza — we can expect it to be busy.
Also, the Starbucks that is connected to Barnes & Nobles will be relocating a few storefronts down into the old Barney’s space at 93 W. Colorado. The 2,640 SF space will now have a restroom for its customers, but I’m hoping for something even better — for it to become an “evening location.” This would mean that they would be the 3rd LA area Starbucks to offer wine and an evening menu. I think the people of Pasadena would embrace this concept and it would certainly be a nice addition to Old Town.
