This new East Sacramento venture from restaurateur Clay Nutting and Michelin-star chef Brad Cecchi (formerly of Solbar in Calistoga) is effortlessly hip, from the cool, classic color palette—light wood tables, gray herringbone floor and a deep teal wall—to the minimalist mod accents like retro dining chairs and custom, mushroom-shaped light fixtures. Dining at Canon is a choose-your-own-adventure journey. You can traverse a more traditional path with a large-portioned protein (think whole beer can chicken) and à la carte sides. Or subscribe to the restaurant’s sharing-is-caring ethos by bringing some of your foodie buddies to partake in a smorgasbord of internationally inspired smaller plates, like Cecchi’s melt-in-your-mouth tater tots served on a bed of rich 60-ingredient mole sauce. Eschewing the bigger meal also allows more room for chef de cuisine Jodie Chavious’ colossal gluten-free chocolate “diner” cake with almond buttercream and rice crispy brittle—although after one bite, you may not want to share the rest.
