Birthday dinner Sacramento

Coming to Sacramento May 5 to take my mom to dinner, it will be a monday night so restaurant has to be open on a monday.

Wanted something nice but not super expensive. Somewhat modern.

She lives in Citrus Heights but we can go from Sacramento to Roseville.

Liquor Privatization in Washington

Hi, I don't buy a lot nor did I write down prices but our new store here is great and is much bigger and better by the same people in Leavenworth. Easier to get to right on Hwy 2. Also we can get at Safeway and Dan's now. Why I was for it and if the state wanted to keep my vote they should have it open on Sunday's and past 6pm!! Like I said we don't drink much but if we have company and want to get something we don't want to have a closed store! So prices or not I guess I am more into the connivence of it and our new store that was the state store now has wine tasting in it and used a building that has been empty for a long time and looks good…so everything is not negative...

Broke Glass Pasta Jar!

I am sad....broke one of my blue-green glass pasta jars with cork and can't find a replacement anywhere online. Does anyone have any ideas?

I think I originally got them from Pier 1 but they don't have any now. I checked Cost Plus, Ikea, all the major stores, online glass stores, even ebay and can't find them. I see clear jars or small ones for olive oil but none for pasta with cork top and color of mine.

They look so perfect in my kitchen too :(

Thanks for any help...

La Petit Grocery versus Herbsaint for dinner Saturday night

How was Dante's kitchen for Sunday night dinner? I am thinking of going out sunday night and wondered, do the tables have candlelight? I know the food is good I have read good recs on it.

I just checked out Tommy's and a bunch of reviews said to go to Irene's that it was better?

I really like the small atmosphere of Bistro Daisy, Lillette, or Patois but all of them are closed on Sunday....is there anything like those that are open sunday night??

And my husband loves Italian so it can be a romantic italian place too.

It was late when I posted not thinking clearly! We are staying in the FQ, taking cab from airport so no car.

Price range well for that night maybe $100 or more if we pick a good wine...we could take cab or walk or street car?? I don't know the area yet...

Romantic restaurant for anniversary dinner

I looked up some great past posts and will be checking websites for the restaurants but I want to know which one I should go to for our tenth anniversary dinner??

My husband doesn't like seafood so need place that serves other types of food also. A nicer place for that night.

We are leaving on Oct 19th and anniversary is 24th so it would be a sunday night dinner.

Thanks for any info...

Need help deciding between two locations in Kauai.

I am leaving next week for Kauai. I am staying in a condo in Princeville area. Have been there about 6 times now. Stayed on both sides of the island and it depends on what you like. I love the north side because of the mountains and how green it is and I like the beaches there. You can pick up fresh produce on the way about 20 min down the highway from Princeville. Waipouli area is in a busy part of Kapaa town with lots of stores and businesses and highway close by. It is more private in the Princeville area (more expensive area).

About take out you will find more in Kapaa (waipouli) area. Not as much to choose from in Princeville but the town of Hanalei is near by and has plenty of small take out spots.

I plan to grab stuff from Kapaa when I am out and about to bring back. Mermaids Cafe is a great take out spot. And Federico’s Fresh Mex Cuisine is right in Princeville shopping center has good mexican take out.

Something like Sel Gris in Portland since they are closed?

Reporting back and if I was to give letter grades Mingo would get A- and Paley's Place B+.

The food was good at Paley's Place but better at Mingo and service great at both places. We had reservations and got good seats both times. Partly that could be because I told them it was husbands 60th on Sat.

Will have to try Mingo downtown next since we liked it in Beaverton, that is the one we went to since we were staying in Tigard (and I got my apple and that store is great!)

Husband had Oso Buco at Mingo and said it is best he has had anywhere (and we have been a lot great places) I loved the rabbit ravoli at Paley's, the sauce was perfect and light. While their choc. souffle was great, I haven't found anyone to beat Va da Vi in Walnut Creek, CA where we lived for a year 5 yrs ago.

Since I got no replies I made res for Paley's Place on the birthday Sat. and Cafe Mingo on friday since we are staying near there. Will report back on how it goes.

I found more posts of people asking the same question after I posted so maybe thats why no one answered. It's okay...you have so much past stuff on here I get the drift!

I have searched through past posts. I went onto all websites and finally picked Sel Gris to find out its closed!! I liked the sound of the chef and sitting by the bar watching him cook and yelling to the waiters to get the food while its hot. So anything else like that??

What is Clyde Common like? and how much of a wait would we have on a saturday night since they don't take reservations?

I am thinking about Paley's Place or something like it? Want a more bistro type place with good food and bar with friendly bartenders and good drinks.

Ten 01 and Toro Bravo looked good but maybe too fancy of atmosphere and food??

It's my husbands 60th b'day (and believe me we have to celebrate he is alive today....drove BMW motorcycle he bought in Coeur d Alene yesterday to Leavenworth where we live in rain and at the end snow.....what was he thinking?...)

We are leaving friday for Portland (in the car!) and his b'day is Saturday. Thanks for any help of a great, fun place!

By the way we are staying in Tigard area to do some shopping (apple store, new mac) and I thought maybe Cafe Mingo might be good for friday night?

We like northwest cuisine and pasta and husband doesn't like seafood.
