Good news for Pasadena residents, as it seems there’s already someone heading into the former Lost at Sea address on Holly Street. The seafood and wine-focused option by chef Tim Carey and partner Santos Uy closed earlier this month following a two-year run, but the space won’t stay down for long.

Next up is The Pan, a casual comfort food spot out of the greater South Bay. The team has multiple locations across Gardena and Long Beach, and are now jumping further north to take over in Old Pasadena. The plan is to flip the space rather quickly, adding some personalized decorative touches and other small details with the hope of opening this coming October.

When it arrives, The Pan should fit in nicely as a casual all-day classic American stop, doing all-day pancakes and omelettes, as well as pizzas (think unique options like shrimp scampi or cheeseburger), salads, sandwiches, shakes, and the like. The plan is to be the kind of do-it-all neighborhood restaurant that always fits a need, whether for families, couples, or weekend brunchers. Check out the menu here.

There’s no official word on an opening date, but with plenty of competition just blocks away eager diners won’t have to wait for their next meal. Within shouting distance is everything from Bone Kettle to Harlowe’s French Dip to the rustic Italian hit Union.

The Pan. 57 Holly St., Los Angeles, CA.
