That photo, taken on March 19, will be incorrect as of this evening.
Enotria, the restaurant that closed abruptly in January, will reopen as an event space/wine bar serving comfort food, reports Sonya Sorich in the Sac Biz Journal.
Enotria Restaurant & Wine Bar will reopen as a wine bar on Thursdays through Saturdays, and will serve as a venue available for private parties on remaining days....
But Hardie has retained his role as owner in the restaurant's new incarnation, he said in a phone interview Wednesday.
He said he's reconciling any challenges by giving more responsibilities to a leadership team that includes general manager/events manager Brianna Fried and the restaurant's lead caterer, Gabriel Glazier, a former executive chef at Maranello and Slocum House. Matthew Lewis will direct Enotria's wine program.

Also, here's the Sac Bee's version of the story.
Enotria is located at 1431 Del Paso Blvd and can be found online at http://www.enotria.com/.
Feast and a foodie fight - Monday's "Insight" discussion veered from Feast when fill-in host Rick Kushman, a former Bee political reporter and lifestyles columnist questioned why restaurant reviews written by the Bee's Blair Anthony Robertson were "mean." Robertson wasn't in the studio -- or even anonymously on the telephone -- to defend the accusation but features editor Swanson fairly explained to Kushman the role and latitude of critics.

Mother, Sacramento - But the standout of the evening was the Fresh Pasta. This dish changes regularly, but on the night we dined it included fresh homemade noodles, peas, mushrooms, asparagus, buffalo mozzarella and mint leaves to garnish. Lucky for me that my friend who ordered this dish was willing to share because it was so fresh, so good and so clean plate-worthy. Now I am no vegetarian, but I didn’t miss the meat for a second during my meal at Mother. It’s walking distance from our office, so for my next visit I’m planning to grab a few fellow SacFoodies and head over for lunch. Who’s with me? Liz Conant in Sac Foodies.
Fruity Tipple: Ernesto’s Raspberry Mojito - I’m a big fan of mojitos, especially on warm afternoons—but I have found a variation on the traditional, super-minty version that just may become my new favorite. Ernesto’s Mexican Food crafts a lovely, blushing-pink raspberry mojito that contains raspberry puree in addition to a judicious amount of muddled fresh mint and lime. Kira O'Donnell in Sac Mag.
