Sacramento – Biba’s Restaurant


Biba Caggiano is the proprietress and head chef of Biba Restaurant in Sacramento, California. Although Sacramento never had much of a culinary reputation, that’s changing. Biba Restaurant is exquisitely good. She’s written seven cookbooks and starred in her own TV show on the Discovery Channel. She’s even won a James Beard award.

It is well deserved. I ate there for lunch one day this week. The restaurant was half empty at 12:30 (where the heck was everybody? the food is excellent!). I had the special – halibut and scallops with fresh diced tomatoes poached in parchment. It was delicious and so was their basic green salad, one of the best basic greens salads I have ever eaten anywhere.
