Dining News: Sloughhouse Inn Under New Ownership
April 27, 2015
It's official! We have taken ownership of the historic Sloughhouse Inn! We send heartfelt thanks to George and Leah Lee...Posted by Betsy Hite on Tuesday, April 7, 2015
Sloughhouse Inn, which served "sub-par food" per a Feb. 2014 review in the Sac Bee, has turned a corner and has new ownership.
Betsy Hite, a chef who owns Elegant and Easy Gourmet Catering, announced her purchase of the business from George and Leah Lee in early April, with Tuesday, April 28 as its opening date. Before opening the catering business, Betsy worked as the Director of Public Affairs for the California Association of Health Facilities, per her Linked In profile.
In other Facebook posts, Betsy says the restaurant will serve "fresh food, locally sourced" with great service.
Recently, Betsy was in the news after being stiffed $18,000 by West Sac's TBD Fest.
If you want to get a flavor for her cooking, she was on KCRA in December to make Smoke Alarm Prime Rib.
Sloughhouse Inn is located at 12700 Meiss Rd in Sloughhouse.
Steak eating champion offers rare interview to The Bee - Schuyler says her main motivation for entering competitive eating contests is to support her family, which includes four kids. While some media outlets have reported that Schuyler works at Applebee’s, she says she hasn’t worked there in many years. The contest winnings help her put food on the table while being able to spend a little more time at home. “It’s about not having to work another minimum wage job again,” said Schuyler, who won $6,000 in the competition. “I can do the competitions when I want to, and not when I don’t want to, and I’m just gone on the weekends usually.” Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
Mango Madness - Walking into Sweets and Sugars can be a dizzying experience. This neveria, or ice cream parlor, across the street from C.K. McClatchy High School in Land Park, is nearly always swarming with a line of customers, and the lengthy menu of ice creams, raspados (Mexican shaved ice), aguas frescas, cakes and other desserts can be a tad overwhelming.

The Trade Coffee and Coworking – Caffeinated Innovation - Keeping the community vibe going, the coffee bar at The Trade also serves pastries fresh from Freeport Bakery and plans to soon begin using chocolate from local chocolatier Ginger Elizabeth in their mochas. With an eventual outdoor expansion planned for the second floor and a parklette out front, Matt and Amanda are working to keep patrons as close to the canopy, and their neighborhood, as possible. As coffee lovers, we’re excited for all of this. As writers looking for creative places to work and collaborate, we’re even more excited to have yet another seat from which to choose. As Sacramentans, we’re delighted to see our city house such a unique and shared experience and are looking forward to participating in its growth. Michelle Sweezy on Girls on the Grid.
A farm-to-fork-saver approach to the drought - Patrick Mulvaney, the chef/owner of Mulvaney’s B&L, hasn’t tabulated how much water is being saved with this farm-to-fork-saver approach. The fork savers also need a trip through the dishwasher after being used, but take up less space than the same amount of forks. On a slammed Saturday night, Mulvaney estimates that the fork savers help cut back on two to three washes – a drop in the bucket, if you will. But more importantly, he says, the fork savers carry symbolism: California’s drought isn’t going away any time soon, and we all need to think of unique ways to conserve water.
