Many moons ago, maybe 15 or more years, my husband, our kids and I would go to our local steak house for special occasions. The general manager, Patrick Kirchen, was always so kind and professional … and he always made us feel so welcome. Over the years, we became good friends with Patrick and his wife, Stephanie, and it was always a treat to see them around town.
In 2013, Patrick and Stephanie opened a beautiful restuarant of their own in South Pasadena. They took all this incredible knowledge and brought in an amazing executive chef, Lalo Sanchez … and together they created Crossings. It quickly became one of my favorite restaurants, and with their ever changing, farm to table menu I have had the most amazing meals there. In fact, we had such faith in Patrick that we booked my husband’s work Christmas party there – before the restaurant even opened.
