Dining News: Now (Soft) Open - Meet & Eat
November 15, 2015
Cowtown Eats first brought you a sneak peek at Meet & Eat, a new Curtis Park restaurant by the owners of Cafe Dantorels, last week.
Since then, it's held its soft opening.
Sac Biz Journal's Sonya Sorich paid a visit took a look at the menu:
The current menu, which displays words such as "artisan" and "organic," features a variety of interesting options. Morning selections range from french toast ($10) to breakfast tacos ($12). Later in the day, a "taco bar" option features three tacos served with tortilla chips for $13 to $15.
There's an assortment of salads, burgers and sandwiches as well. Many include unique twists, such as the veggie sandwich ($13) that filled with beets and eggplant and served with fries. The salmon salad ($13) is equally intriguing, as its toppings include paprika-filled green olives.

The Sac Bee's Bob Shallit also has a couple more details on the place:
The plan is to offer “high-end” burgers and tacos, salads and a lot more. Breakfasts, traditional and European style, also will be served. Once its alcohol permit is awarded, the restaurant will have 24 craft beers on tap along with a diverse wine selection.

From what I hear, the liquor license will be in place before Thanksgiving. I look forward to giving the place a try.
Meet & Eat is located at 3445 Freeport Blvd.
