It looks as though the now former Bashan space won’t stay down for long, as plans are in motion to bring the North Glendale fine dining space back to life, but in a different way.
It’s still early going, but this ABC license points to Bonne Chance Inc. as the new holders of Bashan’s old beer and wine license. if you’re not familiar with that company you may well know the name behind it: Christine Moore, who owns both Little Flower and Lincoln in Pasadena — the latter with co-owner Pam Perkins. Both are known for their pastry, baking, and all-around business prowess as a bastion of the dining scene in Pasadena, which can only bode well for the up-and-coming North Glendale dining stretch.
What’s next for the space is anyone’s guess, as Moore and her teams at both Lincoln and Little Flower have so far not returned requests for comment. Regardless, Moore and Perkins have a knack for providing vital fare to neighborhoods in need, usually by bringing exciting all-day fare and becoming a community hub.
But with the lean on beer and wine at the closed Bashan, plus the restaurant’s previous life as a dinnertime fine dining gem, perhaps this will be a new evening-only turn for Moore, Perkins, and their team? So far it’s too early to tell, but more on this as it comes.
