What are the best restaurants and food in Sacramento CA?

For me, Sacramento is a good city to visit and a good city to live in. That’s also how I feel about the food scene.

Most weekend travelers won’t seek out the magnificent okra at At Tori’s in Del Paso Heights or a deliciously messy sandwich from Bodega Kitchen & Cocktails in Greenhaven. It’s those who have put down roots here, even if they don’t stretch that far, who can seek out and enjoy the best of the best.
