The Most Fun Restaurants in Sacramento

While people may flock to the city for all the fun restaurants in Sacramento, settlers in the 1850s showed up for the gold. This influx of people from around the world created one of the most diverse culinary scenes in the world, and that tradition lives on to this day in the area’s best eateries. Those who covet fresh food will gravitate toward the ‘farm to fork’ movement, which started here in 1849. The trend has grown consistently since the city’s first 'Whole Food' Festival in the 1870s. Evolving ramen, Cali-Baja style, and Filipino fare have also become staples, and this shows just how diverse the gastronomic scene has remained. But which restaurants do the savviest foodies visit to find good fun and food? Welcome to Tastemaker 20. We’ve gathered data from tens of thousands of eateries around the world – all to find where OpenTable’s most devoted culinary connoisseurs like to enjoy a meal. Check out these fun restaurants in Sacramento and book a spot before they’re full!
