Best Celebrity Chef Restaurants In Sacramento

There are plenty of fine dining options in and around Sacramento, but if you're looking for menus created by the city's celebrity culinary artists, here are a few you should visit.
Tex Wasabis

Chef: Guy Fieri

Tex Wasabi's Rock n Roll Sushi and BBQ
2243 Arden Way
Sacramento, CA 95825

Born out of the mind of TV chef Guy Fieri, Tex Wasabi's mixes two of California's favorites, sushi, and BBQ. With menu items like "Gringo Sushi", The Stop, Drop and Roll and the Jackass Roll, you know you are in a unique to say the least, kind of place. If you're looking for good food and a good time, Tex Wasabi's is "on point".

Biba Caggiano

Chef: Biba Caggiano

Biba's Ristorante Italiano
Old Tavern Building
2801 Capitol Avenue
Sacramento, CA 95816

Made with only the freshest ingredients and dishes inspired by Northern Italy, Biba's is fine Italian dining right in the heart of Sacramento. The prices are reasonable considering the ingredients you are getting. Duck, rabbit, veal, lamb and fresh fish, are on the menu, and if you are coming for spaghetti with meatballs, you are in the wrong place. Try the Pappardelle con Sugo di Agnelio e Salsiccia alla Sarda, pasta with lamb and sausage ragu.

Taro Arai

Chef: Taro Arai

Taro's by Mikuni
1730 Arden Way
Sacramento, CA 95815

Taro's is fun, funky, and fresh. The flavor of the rolls are amazing, designed to satisfy everyone's unique tastes. From the Marilyn Monroll, to the Pimp My Roll, Taro takes your taste buds for an amazing ride. This is a must stop if you are in the mood for some authentic, yet fun sushi.

Michael Tuohy

Chef: Michael Tuohy

The Grange @ The Citizen Hotel
926 J Street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Chef Tuohy is one of Sacramento's prized possessions. His knowledge of produce and organic foods is top notch. The Grange is high class, but never makes you feel that way. The menu is unbelievable, with dishes like the "Hang town Fry" (quail with a poached egg, and a fried oyster on a bed of baby greens) or the Zinfandel Braised Niman Ranch Short Ribs with parsnip-potato puree, you are sure to leave full, happy, and anxious for your next trip the Grange.


Chef: Kurt Spataro

1415 L Street
Sacramento, CA 95814

Spataro's, part of the Paragary group, offers classic Italian fare created by a talented chef, Kurt Spataro, the restaurants namesake. With an open kitchen, serving items like pizza, pasta, salad, and an amazing dessert menu (do not leave without ordering the Tiramisu or the warm chocolate hazelnut cake), Spataro's is comfortable, but the food is first class.
