Sac Biz Journal: Midtown Association adds blocks on 16th Street

By one measure, Midtown Sacramento is getting a little bigger.

As of next year, the Midtown Association is adding five blocks on the north end of 16th Street, expanding its scope as far as C Street.

Association Executive Director Emily Baime Michaels said her group wasn’t aggressively trying to expand, but property owners on that stretch kept asking to be included.

“Once we got out there, we found there’s a pretty big desire and demand,” she said.

The association, a property and business improvement district, will be able to add services such as maintenance and safety, placemaking and streetscape upgrades to that stretch, with property owners paying fees toward those costs.

Inside Sac: A View for Rooms – Developer Rebounds with Focus on City Core

The Tsakopoulos name is prominent on some admired Downtown landmarks, with good reason. A gift from Angelo Tsakopoulos in his wife’s honor closed a financing gap at The Sofia B Street Theatre complex on Capitol Avenue. Not far away, he helped fund the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria on I Street.

But another member of the family, Angelo’s nephew Sotiris Kolokotronis, who freely admits he moved from his native Greece to Sacramento because the California capital seemed like a good place to make money, has had more to do with shaping Downtown’s renaissance than just about anyone.

For the irrepressibly upbeat and optimistic Kolokotronis—he took a hard fall in the last recession when the market wasn’t as enthusiastic as he was—his recent success is as sweet as a slice of baklava.

“You never know how things come together,” the 60-year-old developer said during a recent interview at a Midtown restaurant.

Sac Bee: Sacramento native to expand Italian restaurant from New York to midtown

Midtown’s food scene will soon make room for another pizza destination — and this one comes all the way from the Manhattan borough of New York City.

Set to open spring 2023 at 1801 L St., Pazza Notte Restaurant’s second location will feature a 2,891-square-foot space with three outdoor patio sections, a brick oven, happy hour, and a DJ, according to a news release. Owner Tove Nord, a Sacramento native, said she always dreamed of opening an eatery in her hometown.

Sac Biz Journal: Pazza Notte restaurant planned for former Buckhorn space in Midtown

A Sacramento-area native who operates an Italian-American restaurant in New York City is bringing her concept back home with plans to occupy a vacant restaurant space in Midtown.

Pazza Notte has a location in Manhattan that opened in 2000. The restaurant’s recipes are inspired by Italian and American comfort food.

Owner Tove Nord, who grew up in Curtis Park, said some of the restaurant’s most popular items include its penne carbonara, brick oven thin crust pizzas, and Tapas Italiana, which are smaller, shareable dishes such as grilled shrimp skewers and four-cheese bruschetta. Another big draw for the restaurant is its two-for-one happy hour martini program, which runs every day.
