Pause Lounge & Kitchen in Roseville is literally taking a pause in its business operations. The restaurant, which started bringing small plate food and artisnal cocktails to Roseville in December, closed on Tuesday and will re-open on May 4. Owners Lucas and Leyland Jacob Elia are using this time to revamp its menu, with consultation from Hawks chef/owner Michael Fagnoni, and tweak its decor. Some key Pause staff have also left, including Chris Dooley, the mixologist who left Ella Dining Room and Bar to create Pause's cocktail program.
Though Pause menu's new menu is still under construction, plan on food offerings with an emphasis on approachability and using local ingredients when possible.
"Pause came off at first a little too fine dining and stuffy," said Lucas Elia. "We just decided to make a hard left and felt we needed to make the changes that we needed to make. We want to warm it up and revamp happy hour to make it more approachable for Roseville. It'll be an entirely different menu with simple, classic American stuff and good ingredients."
Pause is located at 1465 Eureka Rd. #100, Roseville. For more information: (916) 772-1525
