Featured: Inside Sacramento – R Street
At Localis, chef-owner Christopher Barnum-Dann celebrates Northern California dining in every way: each plate embraces the Sacramento restaurant ethos of local sourcing but eschews a rustic presentation in favor of treating every dish like a work of art. Take for example the beet salad: showcasing beets in multiple ways, the dish features ruby red and golden beets, roasted, smoked and pickled, with a light sifting of ingeniously engineered beet “dust.” Satisfying homey flavors from roasted octopus, Wagyu beef with mashed potatoes and halibut over coconut curry risotto are a feast for the palate as well as the eye. Pick and choose from the small but well-curated menu or select the five-course chef’s tasting menu to sample the best Chef Barnum-Dann and his talented kitchen staff have to offer. If you’re lucky enough to snag a seat at the counter, you can even watch the artists at work.
