Chef-owner Chris Barnum manifests his long-held dreams of cooking hyper-seasonal, haute farm-fresh cuisine in his fine-dining restaurant, Localis. True to the origins of the name (which means “local” in Latin), Barnum sources 85 percent of food from regional homesteads such as Azolla Farm in Pleasant Grove and Laughing Duck Farm in Newcastle. While the midtown eatery’s menu changes as the seasons progress, such full-flavored dishes as buttermilk-fried rabbit (a refined, but nevertheless soul-satisfying twist on Southern fried chicken) and grilled octopus (sprinkled with piquillo pepper “pearls”) are standouts likely to be reprised on future lineups. Whether your mission is to impress clients with a power lunch of linguine carbonara (with house-made pasta, natch) or woo your S.O. with the signature five-course dinner tasting menu, this poster restaurant for Sacramento’s farm-to-fork movement won’t disappoint.
