(Last UPDATED 6/18/19) Description and review of lunch at Ten22, an upscale restaurant located on 2nd Street in Old Sacramento. See UPDATE below.
After seeing The 15:17 to Paris at the Century DOCO & XD Theatre in Downtown Commons, two friends and I walked the short distance to Old Sacramento for a late lunch. We had decided to have lunch at Ten22.

I thought that it was a nice enough day to sit outside on the back patio, but unfortunately Ten22 has not yet opened the patio for the year. The patio in back of Ten22 is a great place to dine al fresco when the weather is nice.

No one was at the front of the restaurant to greet us, but it was not long before we were greeted and the three of us were seated in a very comfy and spacious booth. It happened to be Valentine’s Day and Ten22 was obviously getting ready for a busy evening as a number of the tables sported “reserved” signs.
The interior of Ten 22 is very attractive, and it has a very inviting atmosphere. One friend commented on the décor and noted with appreciation that the spacing between tables allowed for some degree of privacy.
Our server was both friendly and attentive. When the three of us each ordered a glass of chardonnay she suggested that we consider ordering a bottle of wine – advice we followed. On Wine Wednesday’s Ten22 offers 50% off bottles of wine all day long!
After hearing the “specials” of the day one friend ordered the Korean Street Tacos ($12). Another ordered the Ten22 Burger (Nueske’s bacon, deviled egg sauce, Oregon cheddar on a house-made bun) ($12), while I settled on the Spinach, Mushroom & Bacon Salad (local seasonal spinach, goat cheese, shaved mushrooms, bacon, pistachios, honey-balsamic vinaigrette ($14). I am not sure why my salad would be more expensive than the burger – but it was.
The Korean Street Tacos were a big hit. The meat filling was both tender and tasty. The Ten22 Burger received two thumbs up. The burger was juicy and done just right. Every bite was relished, and the accompanying fries were also enjoyed. My salad was delicious. I especially enjoyed how the honey-balsamic vinaigrette complemented the slightly salty pistachios. I often add walnuts, almonds or pine nuts to salads I make at home, and I have now decided to add pistachios to the rotation.
After finishing the bottle of wine and sharing the Lemon Cheesecake ($11) for dessert, we headed back to the parking garage and went on our separate ways after what had been a most enjoyable day.
(6/18/19) The space that had previously housed Ten22 and District is now occupied by Hoppy’s Railyard Kitchen and Hopgarden – an upscale brewpub.
(2/23/2018) The Sacramento Bee reported today that Ten22 will close its doors on March 2nd after nearly a decade in Old Sacramento. Also closing that same day is District, a coffee bar/wine shop located next door to Ten22. The owners of The Orleans Building that houses the two restaurants, The Harvego Restaurant Group, is reportedly looking at both opening an “alternative concept” for the space as well as marketing it to outside businesses.
