Chef Jeremiah Tower, center, of Chez Panisse and Stars fame, was the guest chef at the Parkway Grill in Pasadena for three evenings last week. Patrons lucky enough to secure a reservation, like Jon and Pat Jilg, left, and Karen and Michael Villalpando, dined on starters of smoked sturgeon with salmon roe, foie gras torchon with a quince crepe and oyster tartare with caviar. Main courses included crab-stuffed branzino, grilled double pork chop au poivre, braised lamb shank with rosemary potatoes and grilled spiced duck breast. “It’s hard to due justice to the incredible experience of having Jeremiah Tower here to work with our staff and share his menu with our guests. Thank you to all who came out to dine with us. We are thrilled to have been able to share the incredible talent of Jeremiah Tower with our patrons,” said Gregg Smith, co-owner of the Parkway Grill. A documentary titled “The Last Magnificent,” is currently available on Netflix and other streaming channels.
