Elements Kitchen and
Heritage Wine and Spirits
Off Colorado: Pasadena

Some bad news and some good news.

First two bits of bad news: I went by Elements Kitchen for lunch the other day on Fair Oaks and found that they are no longer plating and, instead are serving food in to-go containers. The food is still great but not as well presented as before. Second, I also found out that their plans to move to Eagle Rock are no more. I was really bummed to hear that. I was looking forward to having them in Eagle Rock. In fact, I was wondering why the "for lease" sign was still up on the Colorado building that they were supposed to move into.

And now for the good news: I found out that Elements Kitchen and Heritage Wine Company are working together now at the Heritage Wine shop location. There is some great food happenning at Heritage - including a Tasting Menu, Dessert Tasting Menu, Charcuterie and Cheese plates. The dishes are not your huge dinner portions, so you can try a bunch of different things and have some great wine too. Go check it out! Drop in for a drink or dinner.

I also heard that on occassional Mondays they do something special - like an oyster bar or a sushi/sake tasting. And apparently they are working on a Sunday Brunch. I signed up for their email lists so I can get the scoop.

This partner relationship just happenned like a month ago, so everything is new and evolving. I recommend checking it out and giving them some feedback. I leave you with some Osso Buco I had there the other day.

    Can we say Vertical Wine Bistro 2?

    I don't know if I'd characterize this a Vertical Wine Bisto 2 myself. Heritage is a wine store with seating for wine tasting and food, while Vertical is a restaurant that focuses on wine. The ambiance is totally different. Heritage is more low key. I did visit Vertical before but haven't posted on it yet. I liked the different wine flights at Vertical but I wasn't impressed with the food I ordered.
