This is the lunch tasting menu from Le Cordon Bleu Pasadena. These are a year old, so I'm not sure how reflective they are of the current situation over there, but the last I checked, prices were reasonable, food was good, and reservations were impossible to get.
Since this is a student restaurant, I'm sure it has its ups and downs, but I think it's definitely worth a try.
Apple Cobbler (This was probably my parents' dessert. or I had two.)
Fish and scallop
