Ernesto Delgado, the owner of Mayahuel, is in negotiations with the city to open a taco bar at the spot formerly occupied by Cafe Soleil, reports Bob Shallit in the Sac Bee.

Real estate broker David Herrera of Colliers International said he understands that Delgado plans to offer Mexican food, including a taco bar, along with beer at the new site if he can reach agreement with the city’s Parks Department.

Café Plan B - Café Plan B, a French restaurant in midtown which opened in 2014, had caught my eye many times and recently I had just the right occasion to check it out. A colleague and I decided to venture out of the office for a rare midtown lunch outing and we were not disappointed. Right off the bat we loved the open-air feeling of the restaurant – an ideal mix of indoor/outdoor, even on a warm day. We decided to start our meal with an order of the Prawn Stix, pancetta-wrapped prawns which arrived on skewers with a spicy aioli on top. The dish was a perfect start to the meal and definitely had us excited for the next course. Liz Conant in Sac Foodies.

Beer Run: In the age of craft brew, big beer comes up short - In the interests of updating and calibrating my palate, I decided to do a more thorough big beer tasting. I invited celebrated beer enthusiast and world traveler Louie Toro, Burgers and Brews co-owner Derar Zawaydeh and Brandon Megowen, brewmaster of Zawaydeh’s in-the-works local brewery called Olde Ritual. On a recent afternoon, we sipped and scored some of the best-selling beers in the land...The best big beer we tasted? Budweiser. There, I said it. Budweiser was better than Stella Artois, which I had always considered a better, more sophisticated, pricier Bud. Blair Anthony Robertson in the Sac Bee.
