Daily Dining News: Firestone Public House's Menu Details Emerge

Firestone Public House is opening to the general public on Friday, May 12 (while holding a $75 per person fundraiser for the UC Davis Children's Hospital on May 11). The Sac Bee's Chris Macias has the scoop on the food they'll be serving.

Executive chef Christian Palmos, who also oversees the food program at sister restaurant Cafeteria 15L, has created a fairly lengthy menu at Firestone Public House. You'll find 10 different pizzas - the business after all inherited CPK's pizza oven - which run from $10 to $14 a pie. Sandwiches include an array of burgers and house-smoked meats, along with a Philly cheesesteak and others that cost between $9.95 and $14.95 (including fries or mixed greens). Entrees cost between $14.95 (brandy fried chicken bucket, fish n chips) and $21.95 for a New York steak.

Lunch at Biba - If you are ever in Sacramento and love authentic Italian cooking, or need an elegant place to enjoy a meal, you may want to check out Biba. The owner, Biba Caggiano, has written cookbooks on Italian cooking and is a local food celebrity. Her restaurant recently got a facelift, and my husband and I headed over for one afternoon last week to celebrate his birthday and check out the lunch menu at the remodeled location. We went on a Friday. This is a very important detail, because Biba's most famous dish of all is her lasagna, which is made only on Thursdays and Fridays. This masterpiece consists of ten layers of spinach noodles, intertwined with Bolognese meat ragu and creamy bechamel sauce. Stacy Grow on In Search of the Finer Things.

Counter Culture: Bee Bee Asian Grill covers a lot of tasty ground - Given that this casual lunchtime restaurant-review column appears weekly in a newspaper called The Bee, it seemed a natural for us to take a look at the Bee Bee Asian Grill, across the street from Executive Airport. We've never seen a menu quite like it. The many dishes are compartmentalized into Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisines, so call it "Asian fusion." Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.

Food trucks: Possibilities and pitfalls to consider - The popularity of food trucks has moved beyond the most populous urban centers of Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco to smaller cities. Resnick said his top five cities for food truck growth are: Indianapolis, Ind.; Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minn.; Philadelphia; Raleigh, N.C.; and Tampa, Fla. Success depends on many factors, he added, but among them are differentiated branding, a reasonably sized menu, a good selection of sales locations, a strong social media presence and patience when it comes to growth.

Lounge on 20 makes cuts to dining options - Lounge on 20, which combined high-end dining with a lounge feel in Midtown’s MARRS Building at 20th and K streets, took a step back from the more complex menu items as the top chefs left the business last week in a move owner Ali Mackani said was due to the economy. The business will move back toward its roots as a lounge with more mainstream fare, said Pajo Bruich, former executive chef. Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
