Sam Goldman Resurfaces to Open The Still Room in South Pas

Derek's, soon to be replaced by The Still Room

Potentially exciting news is creeping through the grapevine that Derek's Bistro in South Pasadena, which shuttered last spring after 20 years and an ownership change, is becoming a new restaurant called The Still Room under chef Sam Goldman and owners Kevin and Leslie Farrell. Not a lot of information exists on Goldman, who is rumored to have worked with Tony Bourdain at WPA, pre-dating the internet, waaay back in the eighties, but early predictions of this being a seafood-focused restaurant with an East Coast Inn influence, raw bar, and solid libations set-up set the stage for great things to come to this South Pas strip mall. Coming in mid-December to 181 E. Glenarm St #105 Pasadena.
