Hello, Milagro

Illustration by JONATHAN BUCK

The most highly anticipated restaurant-related opening of 2016 is the Milagro Centre, the 40,000 square foot public marketplace in Carmichael. It’ll house River City Brewing Co., Fish Face Poke Bar, Insight Coffee Roasters and several new eateries, along with the Milagro Experience (6300 Fair Oaks Boulevard), a 7,500 square foot event center. Get a taste when the Milagro Experience hosts its first event that’s open to the public on Sunday, May 1: “Antiques, Bubbles and Brunch,” a fundraiser for the Carmichael Parks Foundation. You can bring two antiques to be appraised, sip mimosas and enjoy a brunch prepared by Milagro chefs. Since the Milagro Experience is a passion project from restaurateur Chris Jarosz (Broderick Roadhouse and Localis), I’m guessing some of the chefs at his upcoming Milagro concepts may be involved, such as Andrea Reiter (the Patriot) and Adam Pechal (Hunt & Gather).
