The Langham Huntington in Pasadena is one of California’s most luxurious hotels and inside the grand dame are several fantastic bars and restaurants.

The collection includes the Terrace, Hideaway, Tap Room, Langham’s famous Afternoon Tea and our favourite, the Royce, a stylish steakhouse that features a delicious selection of prime cuts, Australian wagyu, and grass-fed beef, all prepared over a wood-fired grill.

Expect a high-quality food and drink offering at each of the venues, which are overseen by The Langham Huntington’s Executive Chef, Denis Depoitre.

To find out what makes the offering so fantastic, Wayfarer Host and Editor-In-Chief, James Wilkinson, spoke exclusively on camera to Depoitre at the property recently and to view the video, click on the YouTube image above.
