5 North: Woodland, Kitchen 428 + Mojo’s Lounge Bar


Kitchen 428  428 First St., (530) 661-0428.  L-D daily; $$-$$$.  Reservations recommended.  Located on a quiet side street in the Historic Jackson Building, this sophisticated restaurant serves a refined menu in a pleasant environment of exposed brick walls and white tablecloths.  A long banquette hugs one wall, and a high open ceiling holds cooling rotating fans.  Art by local artists hangs on the walls.  Menu selections include crispy salmon-crab cakes, a baked brie platter with crostini and walnuts, an old-time iceberg lettuce wedge salad, and both a burger and a steak sandwich.  Dinner also includes more substantial entrees such as steaks, cioppino, and even a vegan stir-fry.  A menu of cocktails presents the usual suspects as well as a classic New Orleans Sazerac.

Mojo’s Lounge Bar is adjacent.  This atmospheric bar positively buzzes.  I like sitting at the long bar, but tables are also available and many people eat a meal here as well.  Noteworthy decorative details include a lovely pressed-tin ceiling.
