Does anyone have the recipe for the black bean and rice salad from the First Immigrant Cafe in Sacramento?

I remember that salad well. if you write into sacbee mailbox in the food section they find a lot of old recipes like this. they once found one for me

Nice resturant in Roseville, CA area

I like paul martins, but some areas are loud and some arent'...guess it depends how far away from the bar you are
chefs table in rocklin, close to Roseville was very good but very small so therefore loud

SF best steakhouses

we went to bourbon steak and pub at levi stadium. it was lunch time right after our tour so could only sit in bar. I had a great filet, my husband had skirt steak which looked bad to me but he liked it.
we ended up staying at Hilton so kind of wishing we had walked next door and went to alfreds
thanks again for all your help

thank you everyone but now plans have changed. we are going to tour levi stadium and he wants to have lunch at michael mina's place there , maybe steak, so i don't think we'll also be having steak that night. but i do appreciate all your suggestions

SF best steakhouses

thank you everyone!

My husband just decided he wanted to go to SF for his birthday next week and he always wants steak on his day. What would be good? We are staying at hotel Vitale at embarcadero but can go anywhere. Any price ok. one of the "lists" said epic roasthouse. Is that good for steak too? I had always heard fish there

Magpie Cafe or Firehouse? [Sacramento]

hard to compare, firehouse is old school fine dining. Magpie is edgy, innovative food in casual setting....
I would go magpie
Your others are my favorites
