Happy Friday everyone! This will officially be our last weekend living in SLO–we’ll be back for a wedding in July, but this is pretty much it! I’ll tell you a little more about the future of the blog in a few weeks, but in the mean time, I thought I’d share with you one of the restaurants we went to while we were home for Wicked last week since you probably will be seeing a lot more Sacramento area restaurants popping up in the next few weeks.
My parents had gone to Cafeteria 15L in Sacramento to ring in New Year’s last year and since it was within walking distance of the theatre, they decided to take us before the show. As soon as I walked in, the only word that came to mind was swanky. The bar area had lounge type seating both inside and outside and every tiny detail had been thought of and designed.
The website offers a great description of both the food and the decor:
Cafeteria 15L is Sacramento’s newest comfort and eclectic urban restaurant offering American comfort cuisine with a classic flair. Designed by the designers of The Park and Mix Downtown, Cafeteria 15L features 2 outdoor patios. The use of reclaimed woods, industrial light fixtures, and an array of mixed and matched chairs create and atmosphere both whimsical and cozy.
Traditional dishes are created with a twist to evoke the nostalgia and comfort of a home-cooked meal.
It was definitely not like the more homey restaurants I’m used to in SLO!
We started out in the bar area for happy hour and split some crab wontons and truffle tater tots–truffle oil is definitely in right now, it’s everywhere!
Then, we moved to a table for dinner. Here’s what we ordered:
Mac and Cheese with a mixed greens salad with candied pecans, goat cheese, dates, and a champagne vinaigrette.
Border Burger with guac, pepper jack, roasted peppers, and a chipotle mayo.
It was definitely fun to eat in the city for the night!
Now back to making that weekend to-do list!
