More fine dining is coming to East Sacramento: the critically-acclaimed Hawks Restaurant in Granite Bay is opening a second location on Stockton and Alhambra Boulevards.
According to owner Molly Hawks, the restaurant will open in 8 months to 1 year. The building itself is new and has never been occupied. “It gives us the opportunity to get exactly what we want,” Hawks said.
The restaurant expansion was mentioned two years ago by the Roseville Press Tribune, which reported that the owners hoped to have the new location opened by June 2012.
Hawks Restaurant has received rave reviews.
In 2012, the Sacramento Bee’s Blair Anthony Robertson gave the restaurant a glowing write-up, writing that, “with its fine staff, meticulous training and attention to detail…Hawks is doing enough to be considered the best restaurant we’ve got.”
Hawks was Zagat rated in 2011 with nearly perfect scores in every category. The restaurant also holds a 4.5 out 5 rating on Yelp.
