11 Must-Try Restaurants in Sacramento

August 27, 2017·by Trevor Felch

California's state capital is a metropolitan hub (boasting thriving arts and college scenes) at the heart of a prime agricultural region, so one might expect high-quality dining — and wow, does it deliver. Sacramento is hitting its stride for locals and travelers alike, with superb beers, tasting menus and nationally recognized coffee roasters. The trends are all here (contemporary Japanese, seasonal Californian bistros) as well as a real unique streak of quirky dishes (sweetbread tacos, chicken-fried mushroom po' boys). We hope you're hungry because here are 11 reasons to drive or hop on a train to Sac Town.

For chocolate lovers: Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates 
The myriad options at this chic sweet shop in Midtown are as daunting as the lines (think SF's Tartine on a weekend morning). Choose between chocolate truffles, ice cream sundaes, macarons, jam jars, chocolate bars and a rich hot chocolate (or frozen hot chocolate in the summer). Pastry prodigy Ginger Elizabeth Hahn started selling bonbons at age 24 before starting this retail shop with her husband Todd, a fine-dining alum of Manresa and The French Laundry. A decade later, it feels like a real-life Willy Wonka boutique. A San Francisco branch is in the works, so Bay Area chocolate lovers might have a shorter drive for those exquisite macaron ice cream sandwiches.
