An OpenTable Diners’ Choice winner with an “exceptional” rating from Frommer’s, Sacks Cafe and Restaurant earns praise from customers and critics alike with eclectic fusion dishes made with fresh, local ingredients. Though offerings change daily, previous dinner menus have included starters such as fresh Alaska oysters from Simpson Bay with a ginger-and-pink-peppercorn mignonette sauce ($12 for four), whose half shells can be clapped together as castanets for midmeal serenades. Diners may encounter main dishes such as the grilled Alaska sockeye salmon seasoned with a soy maple glaze, wasabi aioli, and chili oil ($26). The lunch menu garnishes gullets with the likes of the zesty reindeer-sausage sandwich piled with pickled red cabbage, red onion, and melted jack and cheddar cheeses and dressed with house-made aioli and dijon ($12.75), and bowls of tomato-and-gorgonzola soup ($6) that warm the insides more quickly than a valentine written in Tabasco sauce.
Sacks’ impressive wine list wrested an Award of Excellence from the grape-stained hands of Wine Spectator, with notable pours such as the Goats do Roam rosé 2010 ($6.50/glass) from South Africa’s coastal region. The restaurant’s bright orange and yellow walls and ever-changing, sometimes florally themed local artwork invite patrons to stop and discreetly sniff the two-dimensional flowers.

About Sacks Cafe And Restaurant
Frommer’s described the food at Sacks Cafe And Restaurant as “terrific,” saying, “the cuisine defies categorization but is consistently interesting and creative.” It’s an impressive achievement for an eatery that switches up dinner options on a daily basis, offering local-seafood entrees and plenty of vegetarian and meaty choices.
Diners perched at the tables or tapas bar also feast on weekend brunch options such as poached eggs on crab and scallop cakes and omelets clutching tiger prawns or a filet mignon burger with bacon. Mimosas with freshly squeezed orange juice and freshly popped champagne make getting out of bed almost as easy as not getting out of bed.
