DishCrawl tour will visit a trio of Midtown restaurants

The dining scene in Midtown Sacramento has never been more exciting or diverse. If you can’t get there as often as you might like, at least now you can taste a sampling of what all the buzz is about.

The Cupertino-based company DishCrawl is offering a mini-tour of three Midtown restaurants for $45. Each will serve samples of three house-specialty dishes — maybe something like the meatballs pictured here. At each place, the chef or owner will greet the group, talk about the menu and his/her food philosophy, and answer questions. Adult beverages are not included, but can be purchased separately.

Exactly which restaurants are on the tour is a secret that won’t be revealed until just before the evening starts. If you sign up here, you'll be emailed the name and address of the first restaurant on the tour; that's the tour meet-up spot.

The Midtown DishCrawl will tour from 7 to 10 p.m. May 21. BTW, check out the DishCrawl videos here.
