Daily Dining News: Tazzina Bistro, Golden Bear Reviewed & More


I had the pleasure of eating at Tazzina Bistro in Woodland this summer during the amazing Sacramento Wine and Dine week (where you get to try 3 or 4 course meals at great restaurants for $30 per person). I thought their food was amazing, especially their seasonal Fried Green Tomatoes. They were amazing, and I can't wait until next summer when tomatoes are back in season to have that entree again. The Sac Bee's Blair Anthony Robertson agreed with my assessment of the restaurant, but his favorite part (in addition to their food) were their drinks.

The mixed drinks are nothing short of sensational – the variety, the creative flourishes, the range of ingredients. There are also warm, soothing nightcaps just in time for the cold, wet weather. After dinner, we tried a variety of drinks, including chocolate and coffee-based ones like the Black Forest (Kahlua, cherry vodka, espresso, hot chocolate and whipped cream) and the Snuggler (peppermint schnapps and hot chocolate) that gave us courage to head out into the fierce night weather (the mercury had dipped below 60 degrees).

Other dining news and reviews:

The Golden Bear: Dive on in - The first time Golden Bear appears on the radar screen is through Midtown drinkers, who, with remarkable uniformity, rave about the tacos, one of G.B.’s small plates. It is not the booze talking. No cheddar on these shredded-chicken puppies; all Cotija, all the time. A dollop of the chipotle paste the bartender uses in the Bloody Marys boosts the heat significantly. Greg Lucas in the Sac News & Review.

Night Life: Capitol Bowl's a throwback to a simpler time - In an era when bowling alleys have evolved into massive undertakings offering everything from laser tag to karaoke, Capitol Bowl has remained much unchanged since the 1950s. Casey Mar in the Sac Bee.

Your Guide: Leaving the column, but not the city - Saying goodbye is never comfortable, but first, here's a short story. Rick Kushman in the Sac Bee.

Bakery Set to Open in Midtown - Midtown is set to get a high-end bakery early next year. Trey Luzzi, who worked for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger as a director for the Department of Corrections, plans to open Trey B Cakes Gourmet Bakery and Eatery at 1801 L Street, next door to Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates.
