Dinner at the Overlook
September 15th, 2014

The Dinner at the Overlook on September 28, is from 4:30 to 9 pm, is a SOLD OUT celebration of our city’s commitment to food. We’re thrilled to be one of several important culinary events taking place this night to celebrate food literacy and our city’s Farm to Fork efforts. You’ll dine outdoors at a location that will take your breath away…WITH NEVER SEEN BEFORE VIEWS OF THE CITY AND WHAT’S COMING IN THE NEAR FUTURE. The spot is truly one of Sacramento’s most innovative.

Menu & Chefs

The 5-course meal will be locally sourced and prepared by a team of gastronomy geniuses, local 4-star chefs, including Chef Eric Alexander of Carpe Vino and Kathi Riley, Visiting Chef of James Beard Award Winning Zuni Café, Tyler Bond of Kru and Aimal Formoli of Formoli’s Bistro. Menu teaser: Passmore Ranch sturgeon bacon and caviar, atop puffed sturgeon skin is just one of the mouth-watering dishes you’ll be served.

Top Secret Location

We’re keeping the dinner’s location a secret…clues and photos will be sent out weekly with full disclosure 24 hours before the start of the event. The site has been selected for its significance to our city’s food system, fitting for both Farm to Fork Week and Food Literacy Month. We’re also keeping the event small with only 120 seats. Get a before look at what’s in store for the City of Sacramento while supporting the efforts of the Food Literacy Center and being a part of this exclusive Food Literacy Month event!

This event is SOLD OUT!

Please arrive promptly at 4:30 pm, the reception will be held at the 6th Street Bridge at H Street!

Just drive down I Street, (that’s pronounced eye street) in Sacramento and turn RIGHT on 6th Street and look immediately for the Dancing Vegetables. They will guide you to the off-street parking and then prepare to be surprised.

Wear business casual and comfortable shoes as you will walk a bit to overlook sites — with wine, of course.

You’ll sign a Release of Liability standard form as we will be taking you on-to/in-to exclusive, private areas of Sacramento’s past, and now future, under construction. Prepare for an adventure and great food cooked by some of the region’s best chefs. Don’t be late or you might find the party has been transported to places unknown without you. We’ll be transporting guests to a second location for dinner.
