The Lilly (Monrovia)

By in 02: Pasadena

Super peppery breadstick.
Baked Clams (tiny)
Oxtail Stew and Coconut Pudding.
We came here long ago when it was called Cafe de Lilly, when it was an okay $$$ French Bistro. The lamp + pavement interior impressed me most. One day it closed. It resurrects (same Chinese owner) as a cheaper and more generic wine bistro. The Oxtail stew was…very buttery but homely tasting. At least…now they’re cheaper.
