Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 108: Mother Restaurant

Today I went out to lunch with my colleague, M, to Mother, a relatively new vegetarian restaurant on K Street, between 10th & 11th.  The space is rather small but well laid-out to accommodate the small-scale tables.  Customers place an order at the counter, grab a seat, and then receive table service once the food is ready and again for clean-up:

Most of the small tables are in a line parallel to the service counter, which is backed by a funky rainbow-striped wall:

I had the "cobb" salad, which of course forgoes the typical bacon and other meat products.  This was my second time at Mother, and my second time ordering this salad, which is absolutely yummy and a great value for $9.  I also had the yellow watermelon lemonade, which was a delightful combination of sweet and tart and a perfect refreshing drink for a warm Sacto summer day.

Today's lunch experience was far superior to my lunch gathering yesterday at Ella.  The food was equally good, the price was lower, and the service was friendlier and faster.  I'd definitely recommend Mother over Ella any day!
