The Bowl, a planned East Sac restaurant by owners of 33rd St. Bistro, the Haines brothers, is moving closer to 33rd St. Bistro, reports Bob Shallit in the Sac Bee.
Changes are afoot at the former Larry’s Comfort Shoes site at 48th Street and Folsom Boulevard, where developers planned to put in a butcher shop and a Haines brothers-operated eatery called The Bowl.
The butcher shop is still a go, according to Ken Fahn, a partner in a group that owns the building. But The Bowl will likely open instead at another Fahn-owned building at 32nd and Folsom.

I've tried in previous months to get more information from SRO, the Haines brothers company, about the new restaurant, but they've always declined to elaborate. It appears that they're continuing to be coy, with the building's owner telling Shallit that the concept for the restaurant is "a trade secret."

Dining review: Brasserie Capitale off to promising start - Once Brasserie Capitale gets past its growing pains, it should become just as entrenched a presence on K Street as Ella, Esquire Grill or Mayahuel. The food’s already practically there, and the setting is so inviting that it’s a treat to spend a few hours in this brasserie. At least when that’s the plan. Carla Meyer in the Sac Bee.
