Hawks Public House, the more casual East Sac outpost of the critically acclaimed Hawks Restaurant in Granite Bay, opened on Tuesday, it announced on Facebook.
For the first week or two, the restaurant will only be open for dinner service. When they get their sea legs, they'll expand to add lunch service.
Here's how the Sac Bee described the restaurant back in January:
The fine-dining destination Hawks in Granite Bay will lose the white tablecloths when two casual, sister restaurants debut in adjacent buildings sharing a patio. The smaller space will specialize in pre-made grab ’n’ go breakfast (an emphasis on baked goods), lunch and take-home dinner, with a “well-edited” menu of sandwiches and salads. Note: It won’t be a deli. The larger sit-down gastropub will have a full bar and stained-concrete floors, along with Hawks’ same dedication to quality and farm-to-fork philosophy.

Hawks Public House was first announced in 2013. It's good to see that it finally opened. I look forward to giving the place a try.
Hawks Public House is located at 1525 Alhambra Blvd. and can be found online (eventually) at http://hawksprovisionsandpublichouse.com/.

Holiday cheer - Enjoy the holiday season in luxury-mode at Formoli's Bistro, which is offering a swanky deal this month in the name of “Celebrating Home for the Holidays.” Because Sacramento is rad, and we can feel the seasonal magic right here. With Formoli's holiday light package, you'll get picked up by a limo, escorted to a four-course dinner, then driven through the Fabulous Forties neighborhood to admire the twinkling, lit-up displays.

Tacos forever - The newest is the reincarnation of Cafe Soleil, formerly in Cesar Chavez Plaza. While Cafe Soleil served American food with some Mexican dishes, Soleil Mexican American Cuisine (2790 Stockton Boulevard) serves Mexican food with some American dishes. That means breakfast burritos, huevos rancheros, street tacos, quesadillas, tostadas and enchiladas—plus some sandwiches, like turkey and tri-tip, and salads, including a chicken Caesar. The bright-orange kiosk most recently housed Sacto Chicken Co., which served Caribbean fried chicken until it closed in February. Prior to that, it was an orange-freeze stand.

Meet & Eat - Meet & Eat offers a unique spin on everyday lunch staples, including a hearty veggie sandwich filled with red beets and herb-marinated eggplant between two slices of feta cheese-encrusted focaccia bread; and a posh salmon salad topped with delicate filets of salmon and paprika-filled green olives.
