Every week, the News & Review brings its readers lots of tips on where and what to eat. The Dish restaurant review, Dish Listings, our advertisements, and the Food Stuff and Corner Table columns are all designed to give you an insider’s view into Sacramento’s food culture. Think of Local Flavor as your annual bonus for being a loyal reader. It’s the one issue of SN&R that offers food, food and more food. In addition to the regular dining features, Local Flavor gives you additional editorial content focused on certain aspects of Sacramento’s dining scene.

This year, we’ll tell you how you can be a global galloping gourmet by visiting some of the area’s ethnic eateries, where carnivores and non-meat eaters can dine on common ground; and why brunch is the new lunch, no matter what your budget. A new restaurant seems to open every week in Sacramento, so we’ll take a look at some of those newcomers as well as a couple of Sacramento’s oldest and most venerable eating establishments.

We think that by the time you’re finished reading this issue of SN&R and Local Flavor, you’ll have quite an appetite. We just hope we don’t overwhelm you with ways to satisfy it.
