Traveling To Sacramento

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'll be traveling to Sacramento in June for a business trip and would like to know some places where I can eat while over there? I'll be staying at the Sacramento Hilton, and I'm not familiar with the area at all, so it would be great to have some suggestions =)

thanks

p.s. I'm still learning how to navigate this site (as well as this condition!), so I'm not really sure where I should be posting this topic...

Am I posting this in the wrong forum? I also posted in the Eating Out in Restaurants area but I haven't received any responses on either side... maybe I'm in the wrong place altogether? :huh:

No, you're on the right forum...I live in California, but don't know Sacramento at all either. I have a friend who lives there, but she is not gluten-free so wouldn't be of much help I'm afraid. Hum, I know there are a couple of people who live in that area, but I haven't seen them post much recently...give them a bit of time to find your posts. There was a thread a few months ago about California...I'll see if I can find it and post the link...I seem to remember some people talking about Sacramento, but not sure exactly what was said.

Well, here's the thread I was thinking of, I hope it helps a little. If there are any Whole Foods stores near you, you can always pick up snacky things...they do have a gluten-free bakery with breads, cookies, etc. They also care Lara Bars, Cliff Nectar Bars and Tropical Source chocolate bars. You can also try PF Changs or Outback, which have gluten free menus.

Wish I could be of more help, but I only get up to see my friend once every 5 years or so and each time she has to give me directions, lol.

Hi,

I'm in the Sacramento area. I'm new to this too, so don't eat out much yet, but I'll give you what information I have.

The Hilton is in the Arden area, so there's a Mall right down the street (Arden Faire Mall) on the other side of the freeway.

Whole Foods is also on Arden Way, on the corner of Arden and Eastern. It's about 5 miles from the Hilton. Just keep driving past the mall, and it will be on the left. If you talk to the customer service desk, they may have more information on local celiac-friendly restaurants.

PF Chang's and Outback both have gluten-free menus.

Outback Steakhouse has a location on Howe Ave, which is near your hotel. If you drive past the mall, you'll see Howe Ave just a few lights after that. Take a right and I think it's on the left.

In the Sacramento area, there is a PF Changs in Roseville and one in Downtown Sacramento on J Street.

If you're planning on eating at the hotel at all you also should contact the hotel and talk to the restaurant manager and let him know about your special dietary needs. I would also suggest you talk to the people at your work who are coordinating everything and as if there are any planned company meals, and where they are, so that you can call them. Given enough notice, most restaurants and caterers can easily accomodate you.

Hope that helps.

Nancy

Hi, thanks for the responses =)

I'm actually headed out today, and with your help I've compiled a list of places to check out, thanks!

I've spoken to the executive sous chef at the hotel restaurant, and he told me that the staff and waitstaff are all familiar with gluten intolerance and I just need to let them know when I'm eating in their restaurant. I first told him I have Celiac sprue/celiac disease and he'd never heard of it, so then I said it basically means I'm gluten intolerant and asked if he was familiar with that, and he said yes, they have had several guests with gluten intolerance and are able to work with them =)

I will let you know how it went with the hotel when I return, thanks again for the help.

Good info from Nancy. I live in Chico and drive down to go to Whole Foods every two months. It's easy to find from the Arden area - just keep following Arden until you get to Eastern.

I have gotten decent service at the Black Angus (out off Sunrise - not near Arden though) and gotten a sirloin lunch with steamed veggies two or three times now and not gotten sick. Also, there are a few Trader Joes aroudn the area - one not too far from Arden, it's a Fulton and Marconi.

Hope you have a good time in Sac!

Stephanie
