Dining News: Sellands, Paragary, Lowbrau & Star Ginger Coming to Golden 1 Center

Rendering-CafeBernardo

Continuing its commitment to support local businesses, the Sacramento Kings and Legends Hospitality announced the initial set of restaurants that will serve fans as they attend events at the future home of the Kings.

Local businesses will include:

  • Paragary Restaurant Group, with brands Centro, Paragary's and Cafe Bernardo likely serving Centro Street Tacos featuring corn tortillas handmade on the concourse, Paragary’s wood fired pizzas and Café Bernardo burgers and shakes.
  • Selland Family Restaurants, likely serving Wood fired pizza with chicken, bacon, goat cheese, jalapeños, mozzarella, parmesan and arugula. 
  • Lowbrau, likely serving Housemade bratwurst with bier cheese and duck fat fries.
  • Star Ginger, likely serving Thai BBQ chicken banh mi sandwich with sriracha aioli, pickled carrots, cucumber, cilantro and jalapeño.

First, the new arena deserves credit for adding local restaurants into the mix for in-arena dining. I hope the restaurants offer arena-exclusive items that you can't get at their regular restaurant. If I want a standard banh mi from Star Ginger, it'll be more convenient and cheaper to get it at her storefront. The next level will be dishes that can only be purchased at the arena.

What went unsaid today is what restaurants will be near the arena. Many restaurant insiders fear that you may be able to eat at Selland's inside the arena, but will be stuck eating at Hooters or ESPN Zone before or after the game. I hope the Kings continue their commitment to local restaurants as they fill in the space around the arena also.

Dining News: Now Open - Broadway Coffee

Broadway

Broadway Coffee opened last week, the owner Charles Bergson tells Cowtown Eats.

Located at 32nd and Broadway in Oak Park, the cafe serves Temple Coffee, pastries, sandwiches and salads.

According to a Q and A I did with Bergson in May, the management team includes Jimmy Gayaldo, who has extensive experience in the restaurant industry including McCormick & Schmicks and Carver's restaurants.

Based on what I've seen on social media, the restaurant is still finding its footing, but if you're in the area, you should go and support a local business as they grow.

Broadway Coffee is located at 3200 Broadway, and can be found online at http://www.broadwaycoffeecompany.com/.

Sacratomato Week festivities spice up midtown July 20-25 - Midtown’s Sutter District is hosting its second annual Sacratomato Week from July 20-25. This year, the six-day event will culminate in a festival at Sutter’s Fort with a tomato tasting garden, lawn games and samplings of tomato dishes from some of Sacramento’s top chefs. Gregory Allen in Sactown Mag.

Brasserie Capitale: Très bien - Food as a culturally significant art form might be a somewhat difficult concept to grasp for Americans who’ve never been to France, but it certainly might be easier after eating at Brasserie Capitale. Open since May in the spot formerly housing the Broiler, it’s a brasserie—an informal restaurant that highlights simple, hearty foods—serving traditional French food, plus a huge selection of French wine and beer. Jonathan Mendick in Sac News & Review.

Dining review: Putah Creek Cafe offers homey goodness in Winters - These pizzas were so tasty they encouraged extrapolation: So much planning clearly went into the toppings that equal thought must have gone into the crust. Whatever went wrong with the pizzas we tried – likely an ingredient-distribution issue, since the crust did not taste under-done – probably was specific to that night. It’s called the benefit of the doubt, and Putah Creek Cafe had earned it through two previous visits – one breakfast, one lunch – and the stellar dishes that arrived before the pizzas that same evening, including a shishito pepper-tomato appetizer that ably merged heat and tangyness. Carla Meyer in the Sac Bee.

Counter Culture: Bravo’s in Elk Grove takes a bow - Bravo’s is one of the most fun-themed restaurants we’ve visited, focused on Broadway plays and the movies made from them. The conceit starts with a big metal spotlight from the mid-1950s, once used in the Shubert Theater in New York City and moves to framed wall posters and on to the menu. For instance, side dishes are listed under “Stage Props,” soups are under “Intermission,” and the five-panini list is termed “In the Spotlight.” Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.

Gingery fresh: McKinley Rose, Kupros Craft House - Take the McKinley Rose ($10), a mix of bourbon, ginger liqueur, a bit of lemon, fresh ginger and a dash of club soda. It's sweet, but not overly so, and gingery in an herbal way without getting too bright and biting. Anthony Siino in Sac News & Review.
