Hello all my wonderful Kamon peeps. I wanted to personally let you know that I have made the difficult decision to sell my restaurant by the end of this year. The new owners will be closing for a few weeks at the start of the new year for a remodel. They will be retaining most of the staff both front house and back of the house. The Kamon favorites should all still be there, and they will add their new flavors as well. Please come stop by as many times as you can before the year is over! I deeply thank each and every one of you for all of the fantastic years we've shared. It is truly the end of an era. Thank you all again!
Mizushima's last day will be on Sunday, Dec. 29.
I'll keep Cowtown Eats readers apprised when we learn more about the new owners.
First Bite: Aura Korean & Japanese Restaurant - I’m excited about Aura’s sleek, modern interior and appealing, interesting menu. Don’t miss the kitchen’s nurturing Korean-style ramen soup, packed with noodles and soft bits of tofu; or the feisty Yang Yum chicken. Kira O'Donnell in Sac Mag.
Sacramento ranked among best places to open a food truck - Sacramento is one of the nation’s best cities to open a food truck, according to a trade publication’s recent rankings.

Steakhouse, bar replace Primo's Swiss Club - The building that had for years been Primo’s Swiss Club in Oak Park will make its debut in December as Arthur Henry’s Supper Club & Ruby Room...The menu at Arthur Henry’s will be pretty short. It will have five or six cuts of steak, some other meats, a little fish and five or six vegetarian and vegan dishes. Mark Anderson in the Sac Biz Journal.
Did La Huaca have a case of the Mondays? - Two meals at La Huaca were terrific. One bordered on terrible. There’s a reason restaurant critics eat multiple times at the same restaurant. And guess what? I’d go back to La Huaca next time I have business in Roseville. But not on a Monday ever again. Ed Murrieta in the Sac Biz Journal.
