I have been eating quite an array of seafood lately at a several places in and around Sacramento, along with a few out of town joints. Squid, octopus, rock cod, hamachi, arctic char cooked, arctic char raw (topped with potato chips and fish eggs), tilapia on tacos, blackened catfish, whole roasted trout, striped bass, salmon teriyaki, oysters, clams mussels, lobster, crab. The list goes on.
OK, it's been quite the seafood feast in recent weeks. Which leads me to the focal point of this brief post: Blackbird Kitchen + Bar. That's the new downtown restaurant I will be reviewing this Sunday.
As a preview, I thought you might enjoy seeing a few photos from recent visits. Below that, I thought I would include a couple of pics from a recent drop-in at Restaurant 1833 in Monterey. I'll be writing about that place in the weeks (or months) to come.
And if that's not enough, here are a couple of shots from Restaurant 1833:
