Fox & Goose, the venerable pub at R & 10th St., announced recently that it was planning to expand the footprint of its restaurant. Sac Press's Dora Bromme has more on the plan:
A project to expand the loading dock in front of the W.P. Fuller building, which houses the pub and several other businesses, will soon yield an additional 46 seats on an outdoor patio, complete with new railing, lighting and tables for two or four...
The project, which Dalton estimates to cost over $100,000, will no longer include a 4 foot extension of the dock towards the street, but will still extend from the West edge of the Fuller building eastward toward the the center of the building dock, ending just before the middle stairwell and ADA ramp.
All tables on the patio will be railside, to allow room for a walkway, seating a total of 40 to 46 persons on the deck. The total length of the patio will be 129 feet with 8 feet of width.

Talking with Sacramento "Top Chef" hopeful Tyler Stone - Just got off the phone with Sacramento chef Tyler Stone, who's going to be featured on the upcoming season of "Top Chef: Texas." He's one of 29 chefs from around the country who made the cut for this season - which is twice as many contestants as previous seasons - but will be soon whittled down to 16 once the season kicks in Nov. 2 on Bravo.

A study suggests Sacramento is among 'most gluttonous' cities - For the food- and drink-centric, there's www.thedailymeal.com, a website devoted to "creating a complete food experience for cooks, food lovers, wine connoisseurs, discerning diners and everyone in-between." Now the DM has ranked "the most gluttonous cities in the nation," and Sacramento is No. 11 out of 20. Seven other California cities made the list, too. Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.
Hot kismet: Mo Du Rang - Some higher power put Mo Du Rang on the map. Still, it’s easy to pass Mo Du Rang’s nondescript location in a sketchy strip mall that’s mainly peopled by liquor store/mini-mart shoppers. But that doesn’t seem to bother the MDR folks who lay out a varied Korean spread, as well as udon noodle options for those seeking a more familiar fare. Greg Lucas in the Sac News & Review.
Eatery gives us a taste of the exotic - Abdul-Massih Maalouf is a gregarious man, a people person, whose two favorite pursuits are cooking and gardening. Making food for his devoted customers brings him joy. Digging his hands in the soil and tending to his plants gives him peace. The 53-year-old chef and former officer in the Lebanese army opened his small, humble restaurant on Fulton Avenue in 2002, turning his back on a landscaping career because he really longed to be around people. He wanted to cook, to serve, to entertain. He wanted to have a restaurant that made people happy via the subtle, eclectic and nourishing cuisine of his homeland.
