Hot Sacramento restaurants

Looking for someplace new to eat? I asked Sarah and Rachel Campbell, who write the local blog Twin Soup (, what new and soon-to-open places they’re most excited about:

1. “Hot Italian at 16th and Q. How can we not be excited about a hot new Italian moving to Midtown Sacramento—one that wants to cook for us and do the dishes afterward?! Hot Italian will offer pizza and panini, a gelato bar, Italian clothing boutique, Vespa scooter showroom and a hot Italian chef!”

2.“Lounge on 20. We’re super excited about the anticipated relaxed ‘Redroom’ feel, small-plate taste portions and [more than] 30 handmade artisanal cocktails and a extensive selection of champagnes and wines by the glass.”

3. “We are addicted to frozen yogurt and have no intention of quitting—that’s why we can’t wait for Yo Yo Yogurt to move into Lyon Village, an area in dire need of a fro-yo neighbor!”

4. “Tre, at the former El Torito site on Howe, is being transformed into a restaurant/bar/nightclub. Judging by the Haines brothers’ other successful ventures, this has all the makings of the new hot spot!”
