A new food hall and market to open along the Broadway corridor

Market Club at the Mill, a new food hall and market concept, is set to open along the Broadway corridor by fall of 2019. The brainchild of Sonny Mayugba (who co-owns Red Rabbit Kitchen & Bar and the upcoming Solomon's Delicatessen and Tiger) and his partners David Pringle (Red Rabbit and Tiger) and Andrea Lepore (Solomon's Delicatessen and Hot Italian), as well as project manager Julie Young of Urban Elements, the property will function as a community gathering place, featuring food vendors, boutique retailers, office areas, artist studios and a ping-pong bar, where locals can work, play and eat (or a combination of all three). The team is also working with the Winters-based Center for Land-Based Learning on a market space for local farmers.  "We want...

Solomon's Delicatessen to open this spring in Davis

Solomon’s Delicatessen, the much-anticipated Jewish deli slated for the 700 block of K Street in Sacramento, will open a Davis location first, by the end of May. The deli will take over a 1,500-square-foot space in the Davis Commons shopping center that formerly housed the Hot Italian pizzeria. With Solomon’s Sacramento location still months away from its summer opening, local developer Andrea Lepore—the co-founder of Hot Italian and part-owner of the new deli—says she and chef Aimal Formoli are hoping to meet the growing demand for the concept. "We get messages daily of, 'When are you opening?'," she says. The Davis venture’s interior will mirror that of its K Street counterpart, incorporating a vibrant...

Exclusive sneak peek of KoJa Kitchen’s forthcoming K Street restaurant and high-tech bar

Imagine sitting in a sleek, futuristic bar that looks like it might have been transported from the set of Minority Report or 2001: A Space Odyssey with glossy white materials and touch-screen surfaces on the tables and bar from which you can order drinks, play games or watch viral videos. Come this summer, you won't have to imagine any longer.  The tech-forward concept is in development for the downstairs bar at the new downtown Sacramento location of the Bay Area-based Korean-Japanese fusion restaurant chain KoJa Kitchen, which the owners hope to open by the end of July on the 700 block of K Street next to Solomon’s Delicatessen. The two-story, 4,000-square-foot space will feature two distinct concepts—an upstairs...

A new mini cheesecake shop set to open inside a truly tiny house

A new shop selling mini cheesecakes—and other petite goodies—is set to open on R Street just in time for Mother's Day. Elk Grove-based baker Cayla Jordan, proprietor of Creamy's by Cayla Jordan, her mostly online business that sells homemade mini cheesecakes and cookie-cheesecake sandwiches, plans to open her first physical location by May 12, the Saturday before Mother's Day. Jordan is currently building a 7-by-8-foot tiny house in the loading dock of Hi-Line Electric—a residential electrical supply store that her family owns at 12th and R, across the street from the Warehouse Artist Lofts—from which she'll operate the dessert shop, which she says will function like a stationary food truck and will have a clean look that changes with...
