Dining News: RIP Skybox Grill & Bar
March 17, 2014
Skybox Grill & Bar, which had replaced MVP Sports Bar at 21st & L in May 2013, closed several weeks ago.
According to a post on Yelp, it closed at least 3 weeks ago.
A call to the restaurant and an e-mail to Loren Sparks, who has been identified owners in media reports and Facebook, was not returned.
I contacted the Tarina Sadler who is leasing the space late last week. She told me that she could not comment on what happened due to a non-disclosure agreement, but said that she was working for the owners of the building.
If I learn more, I'll keep you updated.
But for now, make your plans for March Madness elsewhere.
Cafe Rolle lives up to review hype - Yelp's recently released list finally pushed me into visiting Cafe Rolle. Mon Dieu, I didn't know what I was missing -- a little corner of Europe in an East Sacramento strip mall...I was instantly enchanted and impressed. Ed Murrieta in Sac Biz Journal.
Chef's choice, your decision - Michael Thiemann’s new, all-vegetarian spot Mother (1023 K Street) ignites a whole lot of debate. Is it really as revolutionary as a certain well-read Sacramento food critic says? The best way to decide is to head over for dinner, when Thiemann offers 10 dishes for $40-$50. Janelle Bitker in Sac News & Review.
El Faro closes its doors at The Promenade Shopping Center - To much disappointment to regular customers of El Faro Taqueria, the longtime Mexican favorite has closed its doors, at least temporarily, in the Promenade Shopping Center, located on the corner of Rush River and Windbridge drives. Monica Stark in Valley Community News.
The Melt: Year of the cheese - Guided by a board of directors that includes venture capitalists and Apple alums, The Melt is also advised by big-time chef Michael Mina. It shows in the attention to eco-minded and digital details. So, how’s the food? In a word, comforting. It soothes the stomach, the wallet and the conscience, which is a pretty clever market niche. Ann Martin Rolke in Sac News & Review.
Small foothills restaurant excels in making Neapolitan pizza - Colfax, this tiny town in the Sierra foothills with the quaint main street and rich Gold Rush history, may be one of the last places you would expect to find pizza made in the tradition of Naples, Italy. But it was here, an hour from Sacramento, that we encountered a pizzeria – complete with a wood-burning oven – producing pies with a thin crust that’s perfectly blistered and charred, and with toppings employed sparingly, all intended to express the simplicity and elegance of the Neapolitan style. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
