New Year’s Eve in Pasadena at the Ritz

The weather may be lousy this year but the Tournament of Roses parade is always worth seeing. 

One of the nicest things about Pasadena is that it is charmingly old-fashioned.  The Ritz-Carlton Huntington, a stately grand hotel with traditions like afternoon tea is the ideal place to stay. 

Their New Year’s Eve offerings include dinner in The Dining Room, a restaurant recently chosen as one of the world’s best hotel dining rooms by Gourmet Magazine. 

The special menu includes a roasted venison loin with huckleberry sauce and a chocolate trio of desserts which features a chocolate orange baba rum cake.
