The Royce is a very fancy steakhouse inside the very fancy Langdam Hotel in Pasadena, but despite the high cost of absolutely everything here, it’s largely worth it. This is where you go to impress someone extremely important or, at the very least, feel like the offspring of a high-powered politician. So go put on your Sunday best and pretend to live that high life for a night. Just don’t forget to order the crab cakes.
