Sacramento: Eat like a Local

Jump to last reply

Some nice person started this thread for Los Angeles. As some of you know, I've been coming up to Sacramento annually for the last 3 years (this weekend is my 4th). Sorry not requesting a GTG this time -- had fun the last 2 years, but my Friday night this time was booked with work. Next year, for sure!

Meantime, I'm hoping some of you locals will start working on this thread and provide a great tool for others coming to Fodors looking for a good meal.

Since we stay in midtown without a car, all the places we've gone are within that area. So others can build on that.

Nice spots I met our Sacramento Fodors crew at the last two years were:

Paesano's -- fabulous pizza and Italian
Rock Pizza -- more great pizza!

Friday night we joined a group of about 12 very snugly in the "Snug Room" at Mulvaney's B&L, a great little midtown spot at 19th & L. Upscale, well presented California cuisine.

Last night we tried out Lucca, a very reasonably priced brick restaurant with an indoor/outdoor (although the outdoor portion is fully enclosed!) themed place, where the owner serves his own Lucky Dog fresh beef. We had killer roasted mussels to start (I've never had roasted mussels before!), followed by a house salad, fish of the day, and profiteroles for dessert. There wasn't a bad dish or even boring dish between my husband and I. It gets very crowded here, so it's not a place for those who like quiet. We'll definitely come here again. It's also within spitting distance of where the Governor resides (not the mansion, his actualy residence).

Now I'll go back to my notes on other places we've been that were recommended by the Sactown Fodors crew!
