Kinda new in Sacto. Liking the food selection, but have a sushi question. Not really into the mega-roll with spicey mayo sushi phenomenon, and it seems like at places that feature that, going with simple sushi and a little yellowtail scallion roll is not only not playing to the restaurant's strength, it leaves you with the feeling you paid too much. Prefer neighborhood spots to the hip nightclub style sushi. Like Kru well enough, though it definitely doesn't have that neighborhood feel. Mana on Broadway has a nice vibe, but there it seems like mega-rolls or non-sushi is the way to go.
Prefered areas would be Freeport/Land Park south to Fruitridge or the airport (distance commensurate with quality...), Midtown, Folsom Corridor, East to the 50's, Stockton. we live near the UC Med Ctr. and do most of our eating on Stockton (viet , soul food, mex and pizza), Broadway (you know), and downtown/midown. Am intrigued by Freeport's possibilities. Like the local aspect of midtown. Will travel for the good stuff.
So, headed to Mendocino with my folks for a holiday. Any thoughts on dinner in the Mendocino/Ft Bragg/ Albion area? Have read good things about Mendo Bistro, but wonder about how long I'd have to wait at a place with no reservations on a holiday. Any thoughts? Any suggestions on other places? We usually load up at the nice grocery in Ft Bragg, so finding a good restaurant there is a new task for us.
Thanks for any help.
