Pasadena Independent brings you Dining Delights featuring Castaway Burbank!

"Where The Food Takes You To The Top Of The Hill" - Pasadena Independent by @TimAroundLA

I like driving to the top of a hill; the horizon comes ever closer and one never knows what to expect at the end of such journey.

This time however, I kind of had an idea: Castaway has a reputation as one of Burbank’s finest dining experiences, and today I was excited for it to nourish and delight yours truly.

The sun was on its way down, and a gentle breeze was flowing through the canyon after a long 99 degrees Fahrenheit day.

“Hi Tim, we’ve been expecting you, welcome! Would you like to sit inside or outside?”

This restaurant is inspired by the 2000 movie Castaway, in which Tom Hanks’ plane crashes in the ocean and then he shipwrecks onto an uninhabited island in the Pacific.

The spacious wooden interior, the subtle art on the wall reminiscent of island life, the stylish use of glass: if I would have to shipwreck somewhere, I wouldn’t mind having this place close by.

“I’d like to sit in that booth, next to the window please.”

It was still warm outside. In Southern California, the majestic sun doesn’t rest until the stars push her out of the sky.

With a glass of champagne in my hand, I was overlooking the San Fernando Valley and the downtown Los Angeles skyscrapers in the back. I was checking out the menu and decided to try the Cheese and Charcuterie Bar which would come well-loaded with sparkling treats from all over Europe. My favorites ended up being the Culatello di Zibello, aka ‘little ass,’ from Italy and the Rulo de Cabra, goat cheese from Spain.

Then after careful consideration I was ready to choose the piece of meat I was going to devour. (I’m part-time vegan, but when some of nature’s best flavors are on the menu, I’m not in any position to limit myself.)

My server Brianna returned to me and requested a moment for her suggestions. I’m not one to be stubborn (don’t ask my ex-wife!), so I’d give almost anything a try. Brianna however appeared to be a mind reader and recommended the exact dishes I was considering. We decided that I would have the zabuton, from Snake River Farms, and the supporting cast was going to be the classic potato puree with chives and the asparagus with salsa verde.

As the food comes….

"Take a Mental Vacation and Revive Your Senses at the Castaway Restaurant" - Pasadena Now

temp-post-image

It’s summer and the evenings are Southern California cool, what better place to wile away an hour or two but on the patio of the New Castaway restaurant? Did I say NEW Castaway? Yes, after a 10 million dollar renovation that took almost a year the Castaway has re-opened with a new look, new chef, and a whole new steak-forward menu.

Executive Chef Perry Pollaci (The Royce and Cut Throat Kitchen) has created a menu that features steaks, fresh sides and fish and chicken for non-steak eaters. They’ve even got a couple of vegetarian dishes.

I had never been to the Castaway so I had no expectations, I was pleasantly surprised. From its beautiful interior to the vast patio, the Castaway is one nice-looking restaurant. The Castaway boa...

Castaway—with its new charcuterie station front and center in the dining room—is clearly a place with a meat-forward menu, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t veggie dishes for dineL.A. guests, too. The special three-course dinner prix fixe ($49) involves peach gazpacho with poached prawns and yuzu cream; steak tartare draped with beef carpaccio; kale caesar with whipped ricotta; mushroom pappardelle; steak frites; wagyu brisket; and a sweet-spic...
