Corti Brothers Out, Good Eats In
When I first moved to Sacramento nearly six years ago, I was in need of a butcher to help me with my meat selection for a recipe I was making. After asking around, it was unanimous that I go to Corti Brothers. Friends also advised me to pick up some great wine and a delicious deli sandwich while I was there, because both were the best in the town. So when I was reading the Bee today, I was surprised to see that Corti Brothers would be closing its doors and looking for new digs beginning September 30. Selfishly, I’m hopeful the masterful Darrell Corti will keep his business in East Sacramento so that I continue to have my “go to” for great quality meats, an expansive (and reasonable!) wine selection and just plain good deli sandwiches.
As for Good Eats, a new venture from a former chief executive over at Raley’s, I’m curious as what they have to offer. Perhaps it’s a hybrid between David Berkeley and Selland’s, which wouldn’t be too bad. But will they have a butcher? Probably not. Therefore, the countdown is on for the re-opening of Corti Brothers, wherever it may land.
