Early Summer 2022

The feeling of summertime is best summed up in the words of Hunter S. Thompson, “Life has become immeasurably better since I have stopped taking it seriously.” There’s something about the warm nights that just seems to take the edge off. Casual levity is the order of the season, with a carefree nature filling us all…

As well, the food of summer takes on its own languid and free character. Sweet and juicy peaches, cherries and apricots, succulent melons, spicy peppers, and robust squashes and tomatoes fill our local farms and tables, with bounty and endless culinary possibilities. It signals our full bloom emerging from our cool emerald spring.  

Here at The Kitchen, we adore this time of year. The relaxed evenings and unweighted shoulders of our guests remind us of the joys of easy summer vacations. So now it’s time to saunter in once again and create new memories of the season while basking in the bounty of our farms, fields, and waterways. 

Summer awaits.

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.
