Looking for ice cream in Sacramento that is like Bi-Rite Creamery
Unfortunately there isn't a creamery like that in Sacramento, for reasons unfathomable to me. (With our weather, we need the ice cream more than San Francisco does!) The gelato at Hot Italian comes from Naia (in the Bay Area) and has some different flavors, but there's no dedicated ice cream shop that takes a more modern approach. Personally, I wish there were fewer frozen-yogurt shops opening and more ice cream places.
Probably the closest you'll come is house-made ice cream at some of the restaurants with good pastry chefs. Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates also does some frozen treats like fancy ice-cream sandwiches and bars.
