Old-school excellence- Garrett McCord
There are way too many restaurant-scene posers in this city. You know who they are. The uber-chic foodies who are so over the word “foodie” that they ironically claim it as a badge of honor. They’re the types who make a reservation at a restaurant during opening week for bragging rights or a Yelp review, ignoring the fact that most places need at least three months to even begin getting their feet wet.
They’re also the people who have likely ignored the culinary cornerstones of Sacramento. They’ve never sunk their teeth into a thick wedge of Zelda’s deep dish pizza or grabbed scoop at Vic’s Ice Cream. And they certainly haven’t experienced the glory of Biba’s.
