Three Sacramento restaurants are on the 2019 Michelin Bib Gourmand List in the 2019 Michelin Guide California!
Michelin recently announced its selection of the 2019 Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants. The list features 151 restaurants throughout California serving a variety of cuisines.
What exactly is a Bib Gourmand restaurant? Bib Gourmand restaurants are restaurants that “serve high-quality meals which include two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less”. In other words restaurants that serve great food at a price point that is more affordable than Michelin “starred” restaurants.

Sacramento Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants
Canon, located in East Sacramento, has been a hit with Sacramentans since it opened in 2017. Michelin notes “Canon in Sacramento delights crowds with the chef’s menu of fun and shareable contemporary plates.”

Frank Fat’s, located in Downtown Sacramento, is a long-time favorite of Sacramentans. Michelin notes “Frank Fat’s is a longtime Chinese-American staple in Sacramento that has been passed down throughout generations. The food sings with flavor, and the space is filled with charm.”

Mother, located in Downtown Sacramento on the K Street Mall, is the place to go for a delicious vegetarian bite. Michelin notes “Mother serves serious vegetarian fare in Sacramento. The creative offerings are expertly conceived and incredibly craveable.”
I have dined at and enjoyed the food at Mother, but have not written it up in a blog post to date. I guess it is time I circle around and do so in the near future!
Other California Michelin Bib Gourmand Restaurants
The Los Angeles area had the largest number of restaurants listed, 64, which comes as no surprise given the size and population of the region.
Up next was the San Francisco Bay area with 26 restaurants listed. I was glad to see that Yank Sing was on the list of San Francisco restaurants – I often suggest Yank Sing when asked for a recommendation.
The Wine Country was next with 17 listed restaurants. Restaurants classified as being in the “Wine Country” include restaurants in both Sonoma County and Napa Valley.
Other areas represented on the list (highest to lowest number of restaurants) are: East Bay-12; San Diego-8; Marin-6; Orange County-5; Peninsula-5; Santa Barbara-2; South Bay-2; Monterey-1.
