Food for your flight

Sacramento International Airport - Terminal B

6900 Airport Blvd.
Sacramento, CA 95837

So I’m in Terminal B at the Sacramento Airport waiting for a flight to Seattle to go to a food-blogging conference. It’s my first time here, and I have to admit, this airport is quite spectacular. Especially, might I say, the food options. Let’s be frank: The meager options at the old terminal—and at the current Terminal A—leave me somewhat truculent.

But now, just up the stairs past the giant red rabbit sculpture and perhaps along a tram ride are options! I’m enjoying a rather jaunty cocktail at the Cafeteria 15L bar—something delightful with St. Germain, cucumber, gin, and I swear to God they slipped some Sprite in here (anathema to me, but I’ll grant a stay). Old Soul Co. coffee gave one of my traveling companions a jolt that was a welcome respite from the regular terminal brew (read: Starbucks, also available).

A surprisingly jaunty Esquire Grill is ready to seat you with some modern fare, if you’re the power-flyer type. For the laid-back traveler who has style and a more voracious hunger, both Dos Coyotes Border Cafe and Jack’s Urban Eats will satiate and satisfy.

Well done, Sacramento. I must admit, you pulled this off nicely.
