Apart from Hawks in Granite Bay, you're not going to find much in the way of "slow food" around the Roseville 'burbs. But a new Roseville restaurant called Pause Lounge & Kitchen is expected to open by the end of November, emphasizing farm-to-table and locally sourced foods. Lucas and Leyland Jacob Elia, the brotherly team behind Bloom Coffee & Tea, have joined forces again to open Pause. Look for such menu items as seared foie gras, beef marrow bones, duck breast and house cured olives.
The menu will emphasize small plates, but also offer a chef's tasting menu nightly with optional wine pairings.
"We're big fans of the 'slow food nation' so we wanted a name that fell in line with that," said Lucas Elia. "We also wanted to transport people from the suburban environment they're in, and taken to a place of craft and substance where they can enjoy good food and wine. It's a pause from everyday life."
