The Raymond 1886 is a cool Pasadena eatery that's tucked away in a spot you might not notice. Once the caretaker's cottage for The Raymond, a massive grand hotel built in 1886, it is the only thing left of those halcyon days. Now it's a hoppin' joint, with homey inside restaurant/bar space, an outdoor dinner garden and a separate convivial outside bar. Chef Jon Hung presents a wide range of tastes with an Asian bent, from a crazy good tomato and burrata salad with a luscious balsamic drizzle to a grilled octopus al pastor served with pineapple and caramelized jicama that just melts in your mouth. You can make a meal of his "Quick Bites" like those or go full force with a pan-roasted cod in a miso broth that's studded with onions and oyster mushrooms or perhaps dig into a seared pork chop drenched in a katsu jus.
