The Flintridge Proper is a Victorian gin palace in a quiet, foothill town called La Cañada Flintridge. Bookcases line the walls in the oyster bar, while dimmer lights and cushiony seating are on offer in the lounge/bar. Opt for the heart-of-the-action bar seats where you can chat with the enthusiastic bartenders -- if you aren't sure what to drink, trust their judgment -- and gaze at the expertly stocked, saloon-meets-Victorian bar space. Soak up all that gin with starters like crab cakes, deviled eggs, and mac 'n' cheese, or opt for the heartier entrees like pot roast, pork chop and grilled Scottish salmon.
