Sac Bee restaurant critic Blair Anthony Robertson is a little bit of a pizza perfectionist. He knows what he likes and is very particular about it. He's already declared the pizza at Masullo "awe inspiring." Now, he takes a look at Pizza Rock.
And by the time we made it halfway through the meal, we marveled at how good the pizzas were – how consistent, how balanced, how accurately they represented the various styles, and how they adhered to the traditions and craftsmanship of pizza made the right way.
At Pizza Rock, they don't cut corners, skimp on ingredients, dumb-down the combinations or source products on the cheap...
In fact, I was hard-pressed to find much wrong with Pizza Rock since those very early days in early 2011 when they brought me the wrong pizza three times. They've ironed out all the wrinkles.
I even got delivery one night. It's free within the grid and they showed up on an electric-powered bike – 10 minutes before they said they would.

Give New Food Trucks Some Adjustment Time - A few months ago my workplace agreed to have a food truck a day come to our location. Because of my close relationship with the Sacramento food trucks, I was asked to schedule them. My association also means that I'm able to get the newest trucks as soon as they hit the streets. But like any new restaurant, food trucks need a month or so to learn the ropes and make adjustments. Catherine Enfield in Munchie Musings.
Sacramento's Top Bartenders Talk Brews & Booze - We probably don’t have to tell you that Sacramento has many talented bartenders. If you’ve ever sipped on a concoction from the masterminds at places like Shady Lady Saloon, The Red Rabbit, Grange or a number of other joints around town, you know what we’re talking about. Much like the musicians and artists we regularly feature in the pages of Submerge, Sacramento’s best bartenders have an extraordinary amount of passion for their craft and a ton of talent. With the fifth annual Midtown Cocktail Week happening from Aug. 19 through 26, 2012, Submerge decided to catch up with some of our region’s finest mixologists so that you, our valued readers, can learn a little bit about the folks that mix, muddle, shake, stir, garnish and serve your drinks.

Check it Out: Ikeda's in Davis - If you missed the farmers’ market this week but hanker for some beautiful, freshly-plucked local produce, stop into Ikeda’s market in Davis. I recently marveled at the store’s bountiful selection of lovely ripe fruit, in addition to its dizzying selection of nuts, dried fruits, and seasonal pies (available in two different sizes).
