If there's a perfect place for carnivores, it just might be Meat District Co., opening today in Old Town Pasadena after a relatively short build out. Founded by Platinum Restaurant Group, an outfit out of Australia, the interior seems to be a near perfect expression of the current (or perhaps slightly tired) rustic industrial look by DS17. Think exposed hardwood, old farm equipment, exposed bulbs, and subway tiles. As for the menu, Meat District offers something for everyone, from five spice chicken wings and baby back ribs to nearly a dozen burgers on deck.
For more meat heaven, try the selection of aged steaks or a "hook" of dry-aged prime sirloin with peppers, onions, and corn in a creamy pepper sauce. And since this is LA, some salads and veggie items for the healthy types.
To commemorate the opening, Meat District is offering free burgers for a year (one each week) for the first 100 customers on September 9 when the doors open at 11 a.m. So for those that like free things and standing in line, this is the chance of a lifetime.
