Ella celebrates 5 years with Happy Hour specials - Congratulations to the crew at Ella Dining Room & Bar on hitting the five-year milestone -- not just five years in business, which is admirable enough, but five years as one of the city's very best restaurants. Ella set a standard right out of the gate as an elegant, lively, cosmopolitan restaurant with very good food and polished, big-league service. Since then, the restaurant has had three chefs: David English, who now owns the impressive and popular Press Bistro on Capitol; Kelly McKown, who left to run the kitchen at Goose & Gander in St. Helena; and current head chef Micheal Thiemann, who departed Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco to return home to Sacramento. As most foodies know, Ella is owned and operated by the Selland Family Restaurants, a mini-empire that includes The Kitchen and Selland Market-Cafe (now with a second location in El Dorado Hills, in addition to the East Sac spot).

Top notch chefs prepare for Sacramento’s first-ever burger battle - The first time Rodney Blackwell bit into a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder, he fell in love. But that was child’s play. Blackwell, a Sacramento resident, entered the burger big leagues as an adult, ordering variations of the classic stack at fine diners, five-star restaurants and food trucks across the country.

Foodspotting Eatup at Red Rabbit - Feast your eyes on the dishes we had at this month's Foodspotting Eatup at Red Rabbit. Chef was nice enough to send out three dishes to taste. They are possible dishes for their upcoming menu change. I didn't take notes, so I hope I remembered the ingredients correctly. My friends and I are always happy with our food at Red Rabbit and tonight was no exception. Catherine Enfield on Munchie Musings.
