In East Sacramento, the powerhouse husband-and-wife culinary team of Michael Fagnoni and Molly Hawks has opened the ultimate gastropub—a lively counterpoint to Hawks, the couple’s acclaimed fine-dining restaurant in Granite Bay. The two keep true to their best-ingredients-only policy, serving elegant, rustic fare from a menu that changes seasonally, but might include rigatoni with pork and rosemary ragù, for instance, or a succulent wagyu burger topped with aged cheddar and aioli. Vested barkeeps expertly shake and stir creative libations: the menu of “Hawk-tails” includes the Eastern Thai Crested Gimlet, flavored with makrut lime, and the Stockton Griffon, with 1776 rye, vanilla, Fernet-Branca and chocolate bitters.
