Description and review of Brickland Bistro, a family-owned restaurant located on Folsom Blvd. in East Sacramento.
Brickland Bistro opened recently in the former location of 33rd Street Bistro, a well-loved neighborhood restaurant that is greatly missed by many Sacramentans.

A friend and I recently dined at Brickland Bistro prior to attending the theatre. It was a Friday, so I made reservations for dinner in advance.
My first impression was that the renovated restaurant appeared much larger. This was no doubt helped by the whitewashing of the brick walls and changes to the layout.
The far wall has been opened up, and the space that previously housed a private dining room is now home to a full bar and additional seating. I venture to guess that the relocation of the bar area will lower the noise level in the main dining area when it is busy.
Overall, the renovated space is definitely lighter and airier. I like the changes.
The Brickland Bistro menu is limited, but there are plenty of choices including a nice variety of small bites, salads, and pizzas. There are also a number of sandwiches including chicken, burgers (beef & Beyond Meat). Additionally, the menu offers pasta, steak and fish.
I noticed when I checked the online menu prior to making the reservations that the menu had changed in the short time since Brickland Bistro first opened. Another friend told me later that evening at the theatre that the original chef had been replaced – which would explain the revised menu.
Food & Beverage
To start, I ordered a Sangria ($14) and my friend a Mango Mai Tai ($14) which we sipped while we looked over the menu. Both were excellent – but I thought a bit pricey.
For dinner that evening we decided to share a Charcuterie Board (cheese assortment, dry meat selection, fruit, house bread, crackers ($16) and the Chop Chop Salad (feta, olives, salami, tomatoes, cucumber, pepperoncini, red onion, house dressing) ($16).
While we enjoyed both dishes, I especially enjoyed the Charcuterie Board – it had been a while since I last had one. The Chop Chop Salad was good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Our waiter that evening was both attentive and efficient, despite it getting busier as the evening progressed. We appreciated that we had the time to relax while we chatted and ate, and still be able to get to the theatre on time.
To Sum Up
To sum up, Brickland Bistro made a very good first impression. I look forward to returning there soon to try some of the other items on the menu.
