Sacramento County restaurant, The Kitchen recently became the first and only Michelin-starred Sacramento area restaurant. The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors honored The Kitchen with a Board resolution on July 16 to further proclaim Sacramento County’s pride for having an innovative establishment who chooses to operate in unincorporated Sacramento County.
Remarks and a plaque were provided by Sacramento County Supervisor, Susan Peters – District 3 to Selland Family Restaurant founders Randall Selland and Nancy Zimmer, who received the resolution and spoke on the restaurant's success.
“This is a proud moment for Sacramento County and the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors want to extend best wishes to The Kitchen as they continue to excel in culinary greatness,” said Supervisor Susan Peters, District 3. “This well-deserved recognition is a critical moment for Sacramento County’s culinary community and for the future of Sacramento as a food destination.”
The Kitchen, a restaurant founded by chefs Selland and Zimmer in 1991, began operating in unincorporated Sacramento County first by being open just one night per week and serving three courses in a former cooking school. The popularity and culinary fame of The Kitchen prompted the restaurant to ultimately locate to 2225 Hurley Way in the unincorporated community of Arden Arcade. The location provides diners with a garden setting, cascading waterfall, cozy fireplace and raised seating to observe first-hand the cooking talent of Randall Selland, the engaging and entertaining chef emcee who provided explanations about the delicious fare being prepared.
