Posted to Featured June 6th, 2012

Chef/Owner Carina Lampkin and her creative conspirators are contributing to the renaissance of downtown Sacramento’s historic K Street with blackbird. kitchen and bar, set to open in the early days of 2012. Blackbird will be featuring organic cuisine, highlighting seasonal produce from local farms such as Full Belly and fish from Passamore Ranch; a full bar emphasizing modern, unique cocktails, American craft beers, awesome whiskeys and badass tequilas; a rawbar with a changing selection of oysters, crustaceons and other shellfish; and house-made breads and pastas. During lunch, in addition to the usual suspects diners can expect a few signature egg dishes such as biscuits with lobster gravy, crab cake Benedict, and arguably the best quiche in Northern California. At dinner, the kitchen will be providing an elegant menu featuring smoked and brined fish, big bowls of beer-popped mussels with grilled bread, and aged steaks. On the sweeter side, contributing Chef Rachel Kelly is creating an array that includes brioche monkey bread with apple caramel, baked crab apples, Calvados ice cream and bacon brittle and a layered chocolate mousse trio with mocha anglaise, vanilla shortbread, and crispy sugar tuile.
