Last week we wrapped up our Courtyard Dining series as Liz and Maria dined with Rick Kushman on the patio of Aioli Bodega Espanola.  Rick deputized the Sac Foodies on a Courtyard Dining mission and, for a few weeks, we indulged in great outdoor atmospheres and delicious food at some locally hidden gems.  Our visits […]

Courtyard Dining: Aioli Bodega Espanola

by

For our final courtyard stop, Maria and I were lucky enough to visit this Midtown hotspot with none other than Rick Kushman himself. The three of us met for lunch on the patio and I have to say that Aioli has one of the nicest patios in town! Sitting on the patio, surrounded by foliage […]

Courtyard Dining: Osteria Fasulo

I’ve lived in Davis for just over two years now and still love trying new restaurants. When Rick Kushman suggested that the SacFoodies try Osteria Fasulo as part of the courtyard dining series I jumped at the chance.  Osteria Fasulo is an Italian restaurant located in West Davis: its location is unique in itself – […]

Courtyard Dining: The Mustard Seed

I’ve driven through Davis more times than I can count, but have never really stopped to enjoy this cute, college town. So when the opportunity presented itself to enjoy a lovely dinner on the patio of The Mustard Seed in downtown Davis, I jumped at the chance. Although we dined on a slightly overcast day […]

Courtyard Dining: Casa Garden

For our first courtyard assignment, Rick suggested Casa Garden Restaurant. Open for 35 years, and focusing on fusion cuisine and a California take on classic dishes, their menu changes weekly and features fresh and local seasonal ingredients. One of the best things about Casa Garden is that all profits and 100% of gratuities go to […]

The Sac Foodies plan to continue to take advantage of our climate’s still-sunny disposition – and you should, too – by soaking up the courtyard dining atmosphere in and around town.

A Memorable Meal at Mulvaney’s

by

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be treated to a very belated birthday dinner at a local restaurant that I’d been dying to try: Mulvaney’s B&L. Having heard that the restaurant has a great patio dining area, we requested an outdoor table when we made our reservation. Since it was also Second […]

Patio Dining Series: Brunch at Paesano’s Pronto

by

Going out to brunch on a weekend morning is one of those things that seems to come and go in phases for me. I either find myself going every weekend, or not going for months. Right now I’m thinking it’s time to pick the trend back up not only because the weather is just right […]

Patio Dining Series: R Street Eats and Drinks (oh- and a Giveaway!)

by

By now I assume everyone has at least heard about the redevelopment of the R Street corridor, if not yet visited themselves. With new restaurants and hot hangouts like Burger’s & Brew, R15, The Shady Lady and Magpie Caterers Market & Café, the short strip of R Street between 14th and 15th Streets is certainly […]

Hawks, Granite Bay

by

I don’t know about you, but when I was a girl, Sunday dinner was a pretty big deal. Unlike the school week, when dinner had to be more casual due to after-school activities and homework, we looked forward to the big Sunday meal my Mom planned. Whether we grilled steaks or enjoyed a slow-cooked pork […]
