The restaurant of tomorrow is here today at Twohey’s Tavern, from Greg Mallis and Tanya and Jim Christos, the three family members that have kept the original Twohey’s name alive at the iconic 75-year-old Twohey’s Restaurant in Alhambra, which is a piece of Los Angeles history from the era of the Historic Route 66. With a tantalizing menu that playfully calls back to the classic All-American diner, Twohey’s Tavern officially opened its doors in Pasadena on Nov. 7.
A lively new restaurant, Twohey’s Tavern is a cutting-edge hub of progressive and enduring flavors.
“The foodscape has changed dramatically,” said Director of Operations Tom Anderson. “Chef Travis Limoge executes an elevated interpretation of nostalgic meals while honoring timeless and contemporary cooking techniques with a commitment to seasonality, bringing each guest a new experience in a modern tavern setting.”
The new Twohey’s Tavern dinner menu reads just as the original 1943 Twohey’s Restaurant menu, its layout and terminology perhaps foreign to the modern-day foodie, but no less quaint, featuring elevated burgers, dinners, sides, salads and desserts, and fountain drinks, like the Malted Maple Bacon Shake.
Cocktail consultant Patrick Tang was brought on for the cocktail menu, fun and approachable libations that pay homage to Pasadena itself with cocktails such as the Old Town, the Rose Bowl and the Twohey’s Old Fashioned, incorporating Twohey’s Root Beer. Combining the nostalgic flavors of the past with the elevated flavors of today is what makes Twohey’s Tavern the most exciting new addition to Pasadena.
Twohey’s Tavern is open for dinner Sunday through Thursday from 5-10 p.m., and the bar is open from 5-11 p.m. Twohey’s Tavern is open for dinner every Friday and Saturday from 5-11 p.m. and the bar is open from 5 p.m.-12 a.m.
