Open for well over three years I still look at Arbour as the New Kid on the 
Block!! The last time I visited Arbour on South Lake Street I was reminded 
that before the Smitty’s, Del Frisco’s, Crocodile Café and Paul Martin’s, there 
was Burger Continental and The Chronicle, that was pretty much it for food 
faire on South Lake in Pasadena . 

Before I get into the menu the scene is typical of any modern built from the 
ground up restaurant, beautiful bar area, open kitchen, a nouvelle feel to it 
. Certainly this not say that the other restaurants on Lake don’t have their 
space looking sharp, but there is a feel to The Arbour that might make you 
think that you were dining in Napa. So much similar but so very different…. 
ready sports fans… Spoiler alert, there is no television, no Big Screen 
anywhere to be found at The Arbour, and I get it!! 

This is a place with a real focus on the food, imagine that! Chef Ian Gresik 
was the youngest pastry chef in the US with a Michelin Star while at Patina, 
now those stars are hard to come by. I know Ian and his wife Nancy aren’t 
going to like this, but do yourself a favor, call first and make sure he is there. 
His presence makes the night so special when the owner/chef comes by and says hello. And, his charm is the 
signature of the restaurant! If you hold your breath and say M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I , you might get him to make 
his signature dessert, The California, right at your table. looking to score points with the one you love? This a 
deal closer! But wait Johnny there is more! We haven’t even gone over the food yet. 

My dad used to say pictures tell a thousand stories and I am glad this article includes the dishes that I tried. 
Start off with a couple of cold appetizers (appetizer: a small portion to stimulate the desire to eat). First up is 
the Seafood Salad, yep that is the name crab, shrimp and shellfish with parsnips and meyer lemon vinaigrette, 
(Side note, if you like lemonade, Meyer lemons are the best. Next was the Bison steak tartare, Fresno chili 
stamp served with puffed bread. 

 As I have mentioned just before I was born my parents lived in Germany and tartare was very common, 
Chef Ian of course was familiar with European eating habits, next up from the hot appetizers was the Tagliatte, 
crumbled pork sausage, rapini light chili flakes and San Joaquin gold cheese. From the entrees menu the 
Butternut Squash agnolotti, then a taste of the Sea Bass. My assessment was two thumbs up, only problem is 
there are dishes that I didn’t get to, and so badly want to return for the Beef Chili and the Heritage Pork Chop. 

Amusing to me is that the menu doesn’t offer descriptions but what I had was so good that I can’t wait for my

Friday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Vaccines and Related Biological 
Products Advi-sory Committee recommended booster doses of Johnson 
& Johnson for all adults given at least two months after the first dose. Yesterday, 
the committee recommended approval of the Moderna boost-er dose at least 
six months after completion of the two-dose series. The FDA will consider the 
com-mittee’s recommendation and once the FDA authorizes the booster doses for 
Johnson & Johnson and Moderna, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC) will finalize and determine eligibility. 

L.A. County will use its extensive network of over 1,400 vaccination sites and 400 
mobile sites to ad-minister doses to those eligible while prioritizing reaching those 
at most risk, including those not yet vaccinated. In addition to the 1.2 million individuals 
eligible for the Pfizer booster, are an estimated 948,000 individuals who 
completed the Moderna two-dose series prior to April 10 and 298,000 indi-viduals 
who received one dose of Johnson & Johnson by April 10. 
Out of the nearly 10.3 million L.A. County residents, including those who are not 
yet eligible for the vaccine, 60% are fully vaccinated. There continues to be room 
for improvement to increase vaccina-tion coverage. The millions of individuals 
who remain unvaccinated unfortunately represent opportu-nities for viral transmission 
and mutation of the virus. 

"To all those who have lost friends, loved ones, and family, may time help you heal 
and find peace,” said Barbara Ferrer, PhD, MPH, MEd, Director of Public Health. 
“We can expect all COVID-19 vaccines available in the country to have a booster 
option in the near future. In the near future, we expect that millions more L.A. 
County residents will qualify for a booster. For those who are older, have underlying 
health conditions, or high risk of exposure at a worksite, please plan to get your 
booster once you are eligible. This will allow your immune system to mount a more 
effective response to the virus. As we prepare for colder weather and the holidays, 
getting a first, second or third dose of a COVID vac-cine should be very high on 
our to do list.” 

Vaccinations are widely available throughout L.A. County and are always free and 
open to eligible res-idents and workers regardless of immigration status. Anyone 
12 and older living or working in L.A. County can get vaccinated. Appointments 
are not needed at many sites and all Public Health vaccina-tion sites where first, 
second, and third doses are available. 

Vaccinated middle and high school students are eligible for free UCLA football 
tickets. UCLA has part-nered with Public Health to give away free tickets to a 

UCLA football game at the Rose Bowl to middle or high school students in L.A. 
County who’ve received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while tickets last. 
Students aged 12 to 18 who’ve received at least one dose can sign up for the free 
tickets online by visiting:
