Enotria Restaurant and Wine Bar reopens

After a 10 month extensive remodel Enotria Restaurant and Wine Bar, located at 1431 Del Paso Blvd. in Sacramento, opened Jan. 11.

Located in the heart of Sacramento’s art district, known as “Uptown Sacramento”, Enotria’s new wine bar pays homage to the art deco style of the original building and architectural style of the neighborhood. The wine bar is a more casual version of the restaurant while offering the quality and creativity Enotria is known for. Chef Anthony Brenes draws his style from a solid background in California cuisine with hints of Latin America and Mediterranean flavors.  The wine bar is open for lunch and dinner and its menu features small plates, flatbreads, pasta and sandwiches. 

Hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday 11:30a.m. – 10:30p.m., Saturday 5:00p.m. – 11:00p.m. and Sunday 4:30p.m. – 9:00p.m.

UC Davis health system receives Spirit of Excellence Award

SACRAMENTO — UC Davis Health System has received the annual Spirit of Excellence Award for Service from Modern Healthcare magazine.

The honor, one of five announced by the magazine Monday, recognizes the health system for its innovative “patient-centered medical home” approach begun two years ago. It comes with a $5,000 cash award.

The medical home, an effort in place among physicians and staff at the family and community medicine department, is designed to improve the patient experience. In part, that happens through implementation of the electronic health record system throughout the physician network, which frees up medical assistants from clerical duties so they can be more patient-focused, according to Thomas Balsbaugh, UC Davis residency program director.

“Teamwork will be a key to both improved patient satisfaction and improved efficiency,” Balsbaugh said.
