Sacramento Bee restaurant critic Blair Robertson is a big fan of Casa Garden Restaurant. He praised the place in December not only because of its volunteer staff and good cause, but because of its approachable, well-executed food.

On Sept. 12, the restaurant hosts a special event called "Fly Me to the Moon." Sacramento's Jerry Lopes, a finalist on this season's X-Factor, will perform a wide variety of tunes, including a little Frank Sinatra. Casa Garden's Marlene Oehler called him "just awesome."

Reservations are highly recommended, as there will only be two 90-person seatings - one at 11:15 a.m. and the other at 1:15 p.m. On the menu: chicken cordon bleu with spring mix or a turkey cobb salad for the main course and harvest cake for dessert. Including tax and gratuity, the meal sets you back $22.

All tips go to the Sacramento Children's Home, and the volunteer staff comes from the Los Niños Service League.

Casa Garden Restaurant: 2760 Sutterville Road, Sacramento. Call (916) 452-2908 for reservations.
