ABOUT THE EATERY ON ALLEN:
488 North Allen Avenue
Pasadena, CA 91106
Welcome to The Eatery by Claud & Co Catering in Pasadena. We are proud to feature a relaxed open-kitchen restaurant where once a month there’s a new theme of food. One month may focus on a region or culture of food and then the next month centers around specific ingredients indicative of the time period. We always follow the seasons and source local foods. The Eatery is an extension of our catering company. After so many years of catering and menu planning, we thought, “Why not share this idea with the public?”
The “& Co.” part of Claud & Co. to us is an important part of what we do. Our staff has worked together for a long time and we would like to welcome you to join our “family” for dinner. We look forward to meeting you.
Our unique dining experience will be available Tuesday through Friday evenings. We have saved Saturday through Monday nights for private dining of groups with twelve or more and private catering off site.

How it all started...
Our extension to Bacchus’ Kitchen started in the spring of 2014. As I drove by and saw a for lease sign, I saw the potential for further serving a great neighborhood that we were already serving at The Eatery location. We are also a catering company and service many functions on the San Gabriel Valley. Since that part of the business kept growing, it was difficult functioning out of a 1400 square foot location that was taxing all elements of the business. Construction and design started in the spring of 2014 and completed 8 months later into was is now Bacchus’ Kitchen. The kitchen has proved efficient for catering and banquets as well serving the dining room and patio. We wanted a relaxed, casual atmosphere for the neighborhood with one of the other elements involved at Bacchus is our music program that features a monthly concert of top tier jazz musicians. We have made friends with artists from all over the country who have graced the Bacchus Live stage and we are very grateful. We are very involved in local charities and gladly use our space for events supporting many different groups. We hope you join us soon and visit either Bacchus’ Kitchen or the Eatery on Allen.

CUSHING DONELAN - DIRECTOR OF MARKETING, DONELAN FAMILY WINES
We are a small, boutique winery in Sonoma County producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Grenache, and Roussanne. We have elected to prize quality over all other factors. Simply put, we think wine should taste great – with every vintage and every grape, this is our ultimate priority and our greatest motivation.
We believe that the best wines are not made but discovered and we take pride in the responsibility and privilege of distilling for your pleasure the greatest qualities and natural variations in a vineyard and a variety. We start with great terroir, because site trumps all variables, and we proceed with extreme selectivity, conscientious winemaking, and extensive blending trials.
ABOUT CUSHING DONELAN: Director Of Marketing
Cushing Donelan brings diverse experience in brand development and entertainment production to his role at Donelan Family Wines. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Cushing saw the opportunity to enhance the brand’s evolution and create new partnerships, and was eager to dig his hands into the family business.
Truly a man of many interests, Cushing studied art history and studio art in college, including sculpture and metalwork. Following a backpacking trip to explore art and architecture throughout Europe, however, his growing interest in arts and entertainment led him to California to pursue a career in production. Through a series of internships, Cushing assumed an executive assistant role for actor Matthew McConaughey and McConaughey’s company, j.k. livin productions.
In this role, Cushing assisted in the launch of j.k. livin’s clothing line, music label, and charitable foundation, in addition to the development of the company’s television and film projects. Gaining valuable experience in business management, branding and production, Cushing went on to create the production company oneinarow, developing scripted and non-scripted television series – a company he remains involved with while working at Donelan Family Wines.
Cushing graduated from Amherst College in Amherst, Mass., with a degree in Fine Arts. He now resides in Venice Beach, Calif., with his wife and daughter and enjoys being active in the community, playing hockey and lacrosse, and connecting with friends over a bottle of wine.
