‘California begins here’. Sacramento, the capital of California has revamped its efforts on a huge scale to match up with more popular destinations in California like Los Angeles and San Francisco. For food lovers a big incentive is the ‘farm to fork’ initiative. Sacramento is the largest producing state of agriculture in USA. In September every year, the annual Farm to Fork festival highlights the region’s local cuisine made from fresh locally grown ingredients. Restaurants in Sacramento take part in the Farm to Fork Restaurant Week every September. Serving fresh locally grown food has become a norm in most of the well known places here. So, you can be assured of great tasting fresh food wherever you step in during your visit to Sacramento.
Some restaurants have taken the concept of homegrown a step further, and added farm to bar drinks in their cocktail collection with unique names like elderflower gimlet, and Randall’s market margarita.
Like the other cities in California Sacramento too has cuisines from Italy, France and Mexico besides standard American fare. It serves some of the best French dip, prime rib, cornbread and banana pie. For food lovers, who prefer the taste of fresh ingredients over arty food servings, Sacramento is the right place.
So whether you are visiting the Capitol House, biking down a paved trail or exploring one of the thirty odd museums in the city you can always look forward to an aperitif and a great guaranteed fresh meal. Listed below are few of the restaurants you could visit while you are on a tour of Sacramento.
