What’s Happening at Palladio at Broadstone?
Folsom residents can now savor the award-winning menu from Chops Steak Seafood & Bar. Like its downtown Sacramento counterpart, the restaurant specializes in classic Midwestern corn-fed, dry-aged prime beef and fresh seafood. Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill has opened its doors. The dining franchise, named after Keith’s hit song, serves home-style American fare, including chicken fried steak, “freedom fries” and cowboy caviar (black-eyed peas). Come relax at the newly opened Nail Palazzo; their soothing atmosphere and service menu promise to please.
That’s all for this month, but check back in September for Style’s annual Art & Wine feature!
