The owner of Burgers & Brew will expand their growing empire by opening a restaurant focused on pizza and pasta at 11th & R streets, reports Stanford Nax in the Sac Biz Journal.
The restaurant, which does not yet have a name, would be only a few blocks from Zawaydeh’s Burgers & Brew restaurant near R and 14th streets.
“There is a definite need for something like this in Sacramento,” said Zawaydeh, who also operates Burger & Brew restaurants in Davis, Chico and Sacramento International Airport. He also runs Crepeville restaurants at 18th and L streets in Sacramento and in Davis, and just opened a Mexican restaurant, El Toro Bravo, in Davis.

Check it Out: Roseville's Susumu Japanese Steak House - If you’re looking for an entertaining dining experience for the family this season, check out Roseville’s Susumu. A Benihana-style Japanese steak house, if offers similar food theatrics, including steaming onion “volcanos,” impressive bursts of fire and – if you’re lucky – a chef who flings eggs into his hat.

Where City and Wine Country Intersect - Downtown & Vine, the spacious multiwinery tasting room that opened in early December, is one of the latest eat-and-drink destinations to call downtown’s slowly evolving K Street home. The tasting room at 1200 K St. (formerly Blade Barber and Spa) is set up to pour three core wines from a dozen wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Amador and El Dorado counties—including Iron Horse Vineyards, Round Pond Estate, Neyers Vineyards, Vino Noceto Winery and Fiddletown Cellars. Sixty-four additional single-vineyard and specialty wines are available for purchase by the bottle. Catherine Warmerdam in Sac Mag.
Blackbird Kitchen+Bar, Sacramento - A little while back, I had the pleasure of trying new Sacramento hot-spot Blackbird Kitchen+ Bar for the first time. Hiding on a dark strip of 9th Street in between J and K Streets, it would be easy to miss at first glance, but once inside the festive ambiance quickly makes up for the slightly hidden location.

Deja Brew - Before Prohibition, Sacramento was the beer-making capital of the West, and the largest hop-growing region in America. Here’s how an unlikely cast comprised of a Princeton architecture major, the grandson of a U.S. Secretary of Defense, a world-renowned grocer and a man known as the “Pope of Foam” conspired to create what may very well be Sacramento’s most authentically local beer in almost a century. The farm-to-fork movement is about to meet farm-to-pint. Rob Turner in Sactown Mag.
