Since I first posted Ink on the Life in Sacramento Restaurant Guide last summer, I have eaten at Ink numerous times. Actually, I eat there about once a week. For those of you who still don't know, one great feature of Ink is that you can sit down and be served quality food after 2am on Thursday through Saturday. Even on weeknights you can eat until 1am! Of course, being the only option*, Ink gets rather crowded. If you show up after the bars close at 2am, you can expect to wait for seating. Once seated, the service is prompt. ( * I do not consider Lyon's, Denny's nor Eppie's to be options!)

When the Tomato Soup is available, it is a must! I also can't imagine a visit to Ink without ordering the Deep Fried Cornbread Artichoke Hearts as an appetizer. I particularly like the Chicken Tostada Salad. When I order this, however, the servers often remind me that it is a salad, but then again, isn't a Tostada just a salad with a tortilla beneath anyway? The Avocado Chicken Club sandwich is unofficially the most popular item on the menu. My friend Matt enjoyed the Meatloaf, while Roy likes the Chicken Tacos.

As though the wonderful selection of food is not enough, they also have DJ's, wine tasting on Wednesdays, a mural by Dave Garibaldi, Flat screen TVs (with the NBA league pass) and a classy club atmosphere. Ink has quickly become a quintessential Sacramento restaurant, and it should be.
