From long time Pasadena chef and caterer Onil Chibás, Deluxe 1717 is a warm and welcoming eatery offering New American cuisine interwoven with ingredients from around the world.
Savor the cultural influences of Cuba, Bolivia, and France, and the Philippines. Among the menu's highlights are the Cuban sandwich made with slow-roasted pork shoulder, house-smoked pork jelly, jambon, gruyere, mojo, pickles, and plantain chips. There's also an Asian influenced fish and chips made with miso, nam pla sauce, and more served with a side of taro chips. For those with a bigger appetite, try the house-smoked St. Louis ribs available on Fridays and Saturdays. Deluxe 1717 also hosts special tasting menu dinners and wine pairings for guests. Saturday and Sunday mornings are for brunch, and the menu boasts items such as a Bolivian Empanada, a Stone Fruit Dutch Baby, and Watermelon 'poke' salad.
Inside, an intimate ambiance is created with Chibás' personal art collection on the walls, featuring local artists, his Cuban roots, historic Pasadena, and his love for cats.
