Northern CA Food
For those visiting our friends to the north, or maybe even ones who live in the area, I thought I'd throw out some recommendations for good eats in Sacramento and around the SF Bay.
Just to start, here are few of my regular stops, just off the top of my head:
Delancey Street - 600 Embarcadero St, San Francisco
Fancy restaurant, great food, great atmosphere, great prices. Run by ex-cons and ex-addicts who are getting their lives back together. I've never not liked something I ordered there. For dessert, you have to try the three-ginger gingerbread.
Babs' Delta Diner - 770 Kellogg St, Suisun City
About halfway between SF and Sac, this 50's style diner has the best breakfasts I've ever had. Babs herself is semi-retired but her family keeps the tradition going. They only do breakfast and lunch, closed Mondays, and you might have to wait for a table on the weekends. Try Rod's special, which is homemade corned beef hash topped with two poached eggs and shredded cheddar.
Mikuni Sushi - multiple locations in and around Sacramento
There is a lot of excellent sushi to be found in northern CA (and I'll post a ton more recommendations if people are interested) , but Mikuni is just a lot of fun and even though they're "trendy"-centric, the food is actually really good. Tons of stuff that's not even on the menu too - if you want something, ask for it - they probably have it.
Who else eats in SF, Sac, or somewhere in between?
