Bistro Mon Cheri is like Tommy Tang’s reincarnated.
Which just means its like Saladang down the street on Fair Oaks.
So, no, it’s not different than anything Pasadena has seen, sees now, or will probably see in the future.
Superficial Asian fusion cuisine passed off to the generally ossified mainstream diners of Pasadena/So. Pasadena/La Canada/San Marino.
