Espanol restaurant closed? Nope, it's 90 years old and thriving - Let's spike this rumor before it spreads: No, the venerable old-school Espanol restaurant in east Sacramento has not closed its doors. "This is our 90th year in business and things are going well," said Perry Luigi this morning. He co-owns the restaurant with family members. "We've held our menu prices for at least years and still serve family-style dinners." The cause of the confusion: El Dorado Savings vacated the space next door to the Espanol to move across the street, into the Sav-Mart shopping center. Temporarily occupying the empty building is Liberty Tax, which will camp there through tax season. For those driving by on Folsom Boulevard, it may look like the Espanol has closed.

Zinfandel Grille - It’s practically impossible to live in Sacramento and not notice one local hot spot, Zinfandel Grille on Fair Oaks Blvd. Acclaimed for its Mediterranean-inspired menu and extensive wine selection, Zinfandel Grille has been a Sactown favorite for more than 25 years,,,Both of our beautifully presented entrées were incredibly tasty. The generous portion size and burst of flavor coming from every dish left us happy and filled with delight. We ended our night by clearing our plates and feeling more than satisfied with our wonderful meal. Ana Marie Aguas on Sac Foodies.

Counter Culture: Skipolini's worth a taste in Folsom - Skipolini's is a family- operated mini-chain with six stores in Antioch, Clayton, Concord, Rocklin and Walnut Creek, and a lengthy menu of OK items. In case there's any doubt about its target clientele, a big sign in the dining room announces, "Food, friendship and family." Lots of family. Children can even build their own pepperoni or cheese pizza at their family's booth or table. Coming to the rescue of harried moms and dads is the full bar, offering nine specialty cocktails and wines by the glass and bottle. Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.

Review: The Lodge - Sandwiches are a sure thing here, especially when paired with the kitchen’s outstanding onion rings. The first-rate corned beef Reuben comes on marble rye with melted Swiss cheese and just the right amounts of sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing. If you like barbecue, try the intensely flavored Carolina barbecue pulled pork sandwich. The heavily sauced, fork-tender meat offers an initial blast of eye-popping sweetness that’s quickly tempered by a vinegary palate smack. Bacon-speckled macaroni and cheese is a bold version of this iconic comfort food, and I adored the Buttermilk Totties: buttermilk- battered slices of russet potato, fried to an irresistible crustiness and served with ranch dip.
