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 303: Taylor's Kitchen

Taylor's Kitchen is right next to Taylor's Market on Freeport Boulevard near Land Park:

When we went to dinner with B&B on Saturday evening, we had early reservations right when the restaurant opened at 5pm. That time-frame ended up working out quite nicely, as we didn't feel at all rushed, and then Mr. E and I could still get to Lenscrafters afterwards to pick up my new sunglasses (the old ones were a casualty of the Sacramento Harvest event last week!).

I had the cheese plate and a roasted beet salad. Mr. E ordered the foie gras appetizer special and the pork chop. We both enjoyed our meals and would likely be amenable for a return visit, but neither of us was completely overwhelmed by the experience or service or value.

For example, I thought it rather odd that the cheese plate didn't have any sort of cracker or crostini as an accompaniment -- just a blueberry compote, marcona almonds, and fresh honeycomb. All of those items are very tasty, of course, but I was extremely thankful for the yummy Acme epi bread that is served to every table, or I wouldn't have had anything on which to enjoy my cheese!

The interior is quite attractive, with lovely exposed brick:

However, it did get a bit loud once the other tables were filled, so I was glad that we had a table in the front corner, as that little area was a bit more protected from the noise (not to mention the customer and server traffic).
