Pasadena >Beckham Grill
not like meat, rather comfy chairs, immediately loved decor, great atmosphere, unique english restaurant, favorite ny strip steak, love beckham grill
Another great Pasadena find. If you've ever been to the Tam 'O Shanter in Los Feliz, you'll LOVE the Beckham Grill. The atmosphere is quaintly British, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the food regularly excellent. I particularly love the shrimp appetizer...don't remember what it's called exactly...but they wrap the shrimp with shredded filo dough and deep fry them. They come out wonderfully crispy and are served with a garlicky sauce. I usually have the Chopped Stilton salad...I highly recommend it if you're a bleu cheese fan. My husband usually goes for his favorite NY Strip steak, but I try to switch it up between the pork prime rib or the lamb osso buco or the roast duck. I figure...I can get steak anywhere. Another draw of Beckham Grill is that it's totally off the beaten path. Unless you find it by accident (like us) driving down Walnut to avoid the freeway, you won't get there unless someone else sends you. I'm sending you....GO!!!
Meat and poultry dishes served in a British hunt-club atmosphere..
Dark wood-paneled rooms--their walls plastered with British advertisements and caricatures of 19th-century parliamentarians--are lit by the muted glow of candlestick sconces. The menu features starters like house-chopped Stilton salad and onion soup. Entrees include rosemary-crusted prime rib of pork, as well as roast duckling and beef prime rib flanked by Yorkshire pudding. To finish, bread pudding is made from buttery cinnamon egg bread, topped with raisins and warm whiskey glaze.
Ask for well-done!. Nice and quaint, with nice selection of scotches. Prime rib, the specialty here, comes very rare. I ordered medium and there was maybe a half inch of brown around the edges with juice gushing underneath! What was cooked was good; what was not was taken home. Good sides.
UNIQUE ENGLISH RESTAURANT. I have found this restaurant to be very quaint. Lot of great food. I have recommended it to friends for over 25 years. No one has been disappointed. Where else can you have a pint of your favorite along with dinner. A must for all.
Great atmosphere!. I immediately loved the Old English decor that adorns this place. The prime rib is quite good and the sides are delicious. I have also tried the duck which was very scrumptous. One of my favourite things is the rather comfy chairs that are around the round tables!
Meat lovers paradise!. This dining experience was good overall, but not for someone who doesn't like meat. Hearty portions are plentiful, but very heavy for someone who's not used this type of meal. There's no trace of soccer star David Beckham, so don't go if you're expecting to run into Posh Spice and her beau!
