Wall Street Journal names Sacramento as a ‘great small city’ for food lovers

Don’t take it personal, Sacramento, with your “world class city” aspirations. The venerable Wall Street Journal still considers Sacramento under-the-radar and yet to achieve metropolitan status. However, the paper has singled out Sacramento for its food scene.

Along with San Antonio, Spokane, Columbus and others, Sacramento was listed in its rundown of “6 Great Small Cities for Food Lovers.” Said the Wall Street Journal:

“(We) went looking for six of the most vital contemporary restaurant genres in six markets of varying size, none of which are well known for their dining scenes—yet. What we found was very good eating.”

And here are the restaurants which made the Wall Street Journal take notice:

Hook & Ladder

Formoli’s Bistro


The Porch

Bistro Michel

The Kitchen
