Cafe Plan B: Old-school fancy pants - Strangely, duck confit is served as an appetizer, but it could easily be a whole meal, as it comes with flageolet beans. Reader, put down this paper and go chase down that bone-sucking-good duck immediately. Exquisitely soft flesh, flavorful beans, and duck skin so crisp it puts any potato chip to shame.

Blackbird. Kitchen + Beer Gallery - Girls on the Grid was invited to lunch with Demetri Gregorakis, the general manager of Blackbird. Kitchen + Beer Gallery. We were familiar with the location and Blackbird as a downtown restaurant, but with the reopening and restructuring of the establishment we were excited to see what Blackbird 2.0 had to offer...We thought the food, ambiance and service was fantastic! If you haven’t tried them, give them a go and let us know what you think, or if you have checked them out share your experience with us! Chantel Elder & Rachel Smith on Girls on the Grid.
Region has big appetite for food-specific weeks - Here’s a call for someone to organize Sacramento Master Cleanse Week. Just about every month on Sacramento’s calendar features some kind of gut-busting food week, starting in January with the annual Dine Downtown Restaurant Week. Then we get hit in following months with multiday celebrations of bacon (late January), beer (Feburary), and now Negroni Week in June. Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
Need a Salad in a Hurry? Go to Selland’s - Selland’s Market-Café in East Sacramento offers a raft of wonderful menu items, but lately I’ve been relishing the establishment’s first-rate salads. Pre-dressed, packed up and ready to go, the selections range from a hefty turkey Cobb, embellished with ripe tomato, blue cheese, bacon, avocado and hard-boiled egg; to a sophisticated roasted salmon and quinoa salad, enlivened with a light lemon vinaigrette.
