Greek Village Inn, a restaurant near Tokyo Fro's, Bandera and Capitol Beer & Tap Room on Fair Oaks Blvd. and Howe Ave, closed over the weekend.

Here's what they said a note on their Web site said:

Dear Loyal Customers

We are sending you this to inform you, that after Saturday, November 2, 2013 The Greek Village Inn will be closing its doors.

We have proudly served the Sacramento community for over 15 years, but due to the economic conditions these last four years, and as well the managements expansion of Safeway, have forced us to reevaluate our business and ultimately close down our operation. This decision did not come easily or without careful consideration to those affected.

Since 1998, we have dedicated ourselves to providing our customers with the most Authentic Greek Cuisine in the Greater Sacramento area.  We were able to explore our passion, and as a result, we were fortunate enough to receive numerous awards throughout the years. But none of this could have been possible without you—Our Valued Customer!  A heartfelt thank you!

Please come by and see us one more time so we can thank you in person for your past business and support. Our last reservations are Saturday, November 2, 2013.

I don't make it out to that part of town often, so I don't have any personal experience with that restaurant. But I'm always saddened for the staff and the owners whenever a restaurant closes.

Anatolian Table Turkish Bistro - Some restaurant openings are splashy and public, others modest and quiet. The launch of Anatolian Table Turkish Bistro in midtown—one of the quietest openings of 2013—also was one of the most exciting for the city’s foodscape. A second location for Ertugrul and Tugce Hazar, who own Anatolian Table in Rocklin’s Blue Oaks Marketplace, Anatolian Table Turkish Bistro brings a menu of fresh, vibrant dishes to the K Street dining scene.

2H at Bunz and Company: A Winning Legacy - Our meal started off with zucchini slices, lightly dusted with breadcrumbs and fried to golden perfection. One word: yummy. For entrées, we settled upon a Chinese chicken salad and a New York steak sandwich, served on a French roll with their special 2H sauce. Our food reflected the best of what makes sports grills so appealing: comfortable, a tad nostalgic and completely satisfying—especially with a good beer or two (2H boasts 14 on tap), accompanied by a good game on television amongst friends. It’s reassuring to know we Rosevillians won’t let a good thing die. Kelly Soderlund in Style Mag.

Beyond Sushi: Nagato provides a beautiful break from the commonplace - It’s a shame that Nagato appears from the outside to be another common sushi place. Perhaps, even more shameful, is that it did not appear this way until recently. Nagato’s former home of nearly 40 years—a fun, funky, wood-paneled space on Fulton Avenue—was recently closed down so that developers could build that other banal omnipresence of suburban living, the chain pharmacy. It’s also a little sad that Nagato changed its name during the move. For those nearly 40 years, it was known as Nagato Sukiyaki, proudly stating its expertise in that fine traditional dish. Now, its signage reads “Nagato Japanese Restaurant.” Sure, it has lost some of its identity, but thankfully none of its expertise. Greg Sabin in Inside Publications.

Casa Garden Restaurant selected in marketing makeover contest - The Casa Garden Restaurant, a non-profit agency that supports the Sacramento Children’s Home, was recently selected as one of eight finalists in a local Sacramento contest to win a $50,000 Marketing Makeover, stated Marlene M. Oehler, vice president of public relations. On Valley Community News.
