A Love Letter to Pasadena:
Pasadena, quite simply... we love you. from your Craftsman movement architecture, to the winding streets and bungalows. From the Playhouse district to the Gamble House. From the Norton Simon to the City Hall. From the friends and family we have to the friends and family to come. My wife has marched in the Rose Bowl parade and our boys have filled your streets with laughter. You have held a special place in our hearts for years. As we 'hang our shingle' on this restaurant we want nothing more than to make you proud.
My wife and I have been married for 18 years and have five boys (including triplets!) We opened our only other restaurant in Orange County five years back. While the restaurant has been a big success and won numerous awards, we do this for one reason. We love people and we believe that our food and drinks, create an inspiration and safe place for the best of times. We love the memories that are made within our four walls. We are forever grateful.
Brü was founded on a few key principles. First, we strive to treat our guests like family. This is family to us and we want you to be a part of it. We believe the ingredients have to be phenomenal if you want the dish or drink to be phenomenal. We believe in creativity, simple ingredients, beautiful food, happy chefs (because Happy Chef's make happy food), great service and a craft bar program that is second to none.
Pasadena, you have our love. Our heart is in this more than anyone else and we hope you see that through our food and service.
See you soon, at Brü!
Matt & Michelle
