The upscale Palladio at Broadstone shopping complex in Folsom has added yet another eye-catching eatery with last week’s opening of the Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar.
The 8,000-square-foot Folsom site of the Huntington Beach-based chain had its official opening Wednesday at 300 Palladio Parkway.
The extensive menu includes everything from burgers to pizza to salads to ornate-looking desserts, plus a selection of appetizers with international roots.
Naturally, dogs are welcome to dine with their masters in the patio area. There are rules for keeping dogs under control, and humans can reward their animals with selections from the restaurant’s canine menu: grilled chicken breast, grilled hamburger, brown rice and, naturally, a complimentary bowl of water.
This is the chain’s first Sacramento-area Lazy Dog location. It’s open from 11 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to midnight Saturday and Sunday.
