All-Hallown Summer 2022

There is a magical time of fleeting beauty and abundance in Northern California around the end of summer and just before fall.  It has been called many names through the ages, but its gentle touch is always eagerly awaited.  

Just warm hazy days give way to the first chilling evenings of the changing seasons.  Ripe late summer bounties fall into the embrace of autumnal treasures.  Apples from the foothills, pears from the delta, pumpkins from the fields, and mushrooms from the forest mingle with acorns, chestnuts, and truffles, sending a sumptuous adieu to summer.

As the shadows grow longer, we welcome you to join us in a uniquely special time of year.  Relish in the harvest with family and friends, new and old, as we all delight in the bounty of our resplendent region.

Bon Appétit!

—Chef Kelly McCown

Basking in the amazing abundance of the Sacramento region, The Kitchen offers an ever-evolving seasonal menu. Taking cues from the farmers, ranchers, and mother nature herself, we create a weekly menu as part of a seasonal snapshot, in an effort to showcase the best of this culinary bounty. All menus are subject to change based on nature’s whims. Please check our website or call our reservation line for our current menu.
