Sacramento Downtown - walking at night
Thanks for the hint to head up J Street to the 20's, and poke around. I ended up noshing a bit - first course fresh spring rolls at Tamarind Vietnamese, and then on to the Combination Platter at Tapa the World.
And, scouted out plenty of other fine looking choices along the way to return to another time. The evening weather that nigh was downright balmy -- this weekend in late January when the snow covered moutains were in full view. People were still enjoying some of the sidewalk tables.
Chowhounders, you hit a homerun on this one.. Thanks for opening up a new alternative to Convention World Downtown Sacramento, just a few very walkable blocks away.
The Sheraton is right on the border between the cultural center of Sacramento (midtown) and the DMZ (downtown). Go East Young Man!
Among the other options are Ella's, Esquire Grill (13th & K), Lucca - the two latter being our Governor's favorite while in town. Esquire & Ella's are outside your door, but Esquire is not in the database - exit out the front door and turn right.
