Happened onto a soft opening of 6 Degrees on Solano tonight. Was looking around trying to find a menu in the window and a server came out and invited me in to try some free tastes.
Arancini, fried olives, caesar salad, fried squid, mussels, pear & nuts salad, desserts. Not as hot as I'd have put up with if I'd been paying but pretty good. They said they'd be doing it till maybe 11pm and again tomorrow, then close for a few days before opening for real. 1403 Solano in Albany.
