Easy on I opened in February, replacing Michelangelo's. Sac Biz Journal's Andrea Thompson gives her thoughts on the place:
If you're looking for a friendly neighborhood bar and grill in midtown, Easy on I fits the bill. Similar to others in town such as The Round Corner or Old Ironsides, it's the newest hangout for folks looking to grab a drink, a meal and some entertaining chitchat from friendly owners and bartenders...
The food is solid bar food with some fun twists. Alongside the standard appetizers of wings, sliders and loaded fries is a roasted pasilla chile stuffed with cheese and jalapenos, and sandwiches include marinated tri-tip cooked to order, a salmon reuben on marbled rye bread and burgers with juicy, thick, hand-formed patties. "The dressings and sauces are made here," explains Carol Hoyt. "We wanted it to be from-scratch cooking -- not opening jars and cans."

I've eaten there twice and been pleased by the experience. I agree that it's a solid neighborhood joint. The first time, I went for brunch and found the service quick and friendly, and the food more than decent. The second time, it was to watch college football with a group of friends, and I was equally impressed.
If you're looking for a low key place to enjoy good food and have a great time, consider Easy on I.
Easy on I is located at 1725 I Street, and can be found online at EasyOnI.com.
