Broderick Restaurant's new midtown outpost is expected to open on Wednesday, reports Sonya Sorich in Sac Biz Journal.
Broderick Roadhouse opens its new location in midtown Sacramento this week, filling space vacated by a short-lived Wahoo's Fish Taco outlet.
The restaurant in the L Street Lofts building will open on Wednesday. Expect something similar to Broderick Roadhouse in West Sacramento, which opened in 2012 and will stay open.

Based on my Facebook feed, it looks like Broderick's already started holding preview nights on Monday, so a Wednesday opening is probably pretty solid.
There are a couple other tidbits related to Team Broderick (officially Working Class Heroes) to share:
- Congrats to Team Broderick, who won this past weekend's Sactown Wings Festival's Best Overall Wings in Sacramento award.
- Saddle Rock, which will soon replace Capital Dime, has been holding pop ups around town to build buzz for the place. In early August, they were the guest chefs at the Plates Cafe monthly dinner, and this past weekend, they did a pop up brunch at Localis. Follow them on Facebook to find out where they'll be next.
- This one's a little dated, but Jess Milbourn (formerly of West Sac's The Eatery) announced he left Broderick in May. He's hinted that he has a new venture coming.
Broderick Midtown is located at 1820 L St, Sacramento.

At-movie dining is catching on in Sacramento, beyond - The hot link cost $8.50, and the equally tasty Ruhstaller 1881 red ale – a beer that’s substantial without being heavy – ordered with it was $9.50. That’s pricey considering it costs $18 to enter the theater. But convenience costs. We also liked the chicken tenders ($7.50), which were crisp and not too greasy. Aside from these items, however, the Esquire’s food selections, including Freschetta pizza and White Castle burgers, do not differ much from what’s available at other theaters. Carla Meyer in the Sac Bee.
Coffee house’s shrub drink is worth cultivating - The shrub is actually an old, old drink that has been rediscovered and revamped by a new wave of cocktail artisans and discerning foodies. The Mill’s version is nonalcoholic and drinks more like a craft soda. To the uninitiated, the most notable flavor note is the vinegar – it’s tart in a way that will soothe some and jolt others. But no one denies its palate-pleasing finish that sweeps over the tongue in a way that is crisp, dry and refreshing. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
Heirloom tomatoes meet arugula, basil and bacon — as pizza toppings - The news: Instead of ending the run of the Pizza of the Month for July — the Heirloom Tomato and Pancetta Pizza — Guerrera has decided to keep it through August. That’s because of the stunning quality of the heirloom tomatoes she’s finding at farmers markets. “They are looking so beautiful that we will continue serving the pizza,” she wrote.The e-newsletter goes on: “We start with a thinner-crust dough for a medium pizza. Then we add mozzarella and top it with a selection of heirloom tomatoes (these could include Brandywines, Cherokee Purples, Green Zebras or even the yellow Dagma’s Perfections). We then add pancetta, in the form of applewood-smoked bacon. When the pizza comes from the oven, we sprinkle on fresh arugula and basil.” Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.
Gastronomicon: Revisitng crust knuckles with Pizza Hut's Cheesy Bites Pizza - We paid $11.99 before tax and delivery charge for a one-topping large. Was it worth it? Not really. You could argue over the novelty, but when I can get larges from Domino’s for $8 apiece and feel better about actually eating them, that’s what’s gonna happen. Save this pizza for those mired in the stuffed-crust life. Anthony Siino in Sac News & Review.
Construction Starts on Jimmy John’s in Natomas - Construction has started on a new Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches slated for Natomas Town Center. As reported by THE NATOMAS BUZZ in May 2015, the new eatery will be the first franchise for the sandwich chain in the greater Sacramento area. On Natomas Buzz.
Farm-to-Freeway? - As Sacramento’s farm-to-fork identity takes root, now is the time to replant our region’s biggest farmers’ market in a location that honors our agricultural heritage, not “cements” it. Rob Turner in Sactown Mag.
Six sandwiches to savor during National Sandwich Month - August is National Sandwich Month, which gives us all a great excuse to break out of our lunchtime routine and try something new. Behold six local creations that range from refined to over-the-top. Griddled mac and cheese sandwich with bacon, anyone?

VIDEO: Famous El Dorado restaurant Poor Red's hopes to reopen in late 2015 - After being closed two years ago due to tax issues, it's coming back with new owners. Jeff Genovese is one of three investors bringing Poor Red's back. "It means a lot to the people here, the town of El Dorado, Sacramento area, Placerville...the jobs we're going to bring back, the people coming in the door all have a story to tell, anybody that's ever been here has a story to tell and that's all going to come back." The bar will remain just the way the stories tell. The new owners will leave the murals up depicting the gold rush days and the town of El Dorado as it used to be: tales of the old west.
