Sacramento is where big city vibes intersect with homegrown loyalty, and nothing reflects that more than the dining options available at Golden 1 Center. Where better to showcase the fact that Sacramento is the Farm-to-Fork capital of the world than with 17,000 dinner guests? Every meal served here pays respect to regional agriculture, global flavor, and the best fans in the world.
Our executive chef and restaurant partners source 90% of their ingredients from a 150-mile radius, so whether you choose handmade tacos, wood-fired pizza, or a bier hall sausage, dining at Golden 1 Center is a celebration of Sacramento’s diversity and abundance. Our commitment to local, seasonal ingredients is simple: Fresher is better. Ingredients have more flavor because they are harvested at peak ripeness, costs are lower by avoiding cross-country transportation, and the local economy benefits by supporting producers we’re proud to call neighbors. When you eat at Golden 1 Center you are an active participant in the Slow Food Movement and the radical notion that big crowds can be fed great food. Delicious is always in season in Sacramento.
- At least 90% of our culinary ingredients are sourced from a 150 mile radius
- The majority of our beer, wine, and spirits are sourced from the same 150 mile radius.
- Our green waste, e.g. vegetable trimmings, protein trimmings and scraps, will be treated by a groundbreaking new program called California Safe Soil. The waste will be treated with organic enzymes and processed in a giant food digester. It will be “digested” and then pasteurized, filtered and put back into the soil at local farms. So far, farms using this natural organic input are increasing crop yields by as much as 30%.
- Our leftover fryer oil, which is locally produced rice bran oil, will be converted to biodiesel by a local, family-run business
