Dining News: Mikuni Fair Oaks to Reopen This Week

Mikuni's original location in Fair Oaks will reopen this week after a fire damaged the restaurant just before the new year.

Originally, Mikuni staff had predicted it would take 2-3 weeks to reopen, followed by a revised timeline of approximately 7 weeks.

But it looks like it was worth the wait. As you can see in the before and after picture above, they took the opportunity to not just rebuild the space, but update it as well.

The restaurant will reopen to the public on Wednesday, March 6 with its regular menu.

On Tuesday, March 5, Mikuni will host the Mikuni Ignite Party from 6 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online.

For more information about the party, visit

Mikuni Fair Oaks is located at 4323 Hazel Avenue.

'We can pickle that:' specialty food company to open kitchen and storefront in Midtown - Poole and Peters wants to take the brining business to the next level, and have the space to whip up his award-winning Bloody Mary mix. Right now Poole is spending nights and early mornings creating the concoction in Pour House's kitchen, where he's general manager. Before that, he was mixing the blend at Kasbah Lounge's kitchen during the afternoons. Due to increased demand, which likely received a bump after Poole won second place in Absolut Vodka's "Bloody Mary Search 2012," the business needs room to grow. So he's moving Preservation & Co. into a 3,200 square-feet building just around the corner on 19th Street, and building a commercial kitchen. Karen Wilkinson in Sac Press.
