Nominated for: BEST Mexican
Patron is the latest addition to an emerging restaurant scene that is percolating in East Sacramento. To understand this new Mexican restaurant it helps to understand East Sacramento. East Sacramento's well deserved reputation for being an upscale fashionable area with a strong sense of neighborhood and community isn't hard to appreciate. Nestled between downtown Sacramento and the suburbs - and further influenced by California State University, Sacramento, located in the immediate vicinity - East Sacramento has a unique geographical and cultural balance of urban hipness and suburban family lifestyles.As downtown continues to open more cutting edge eateries and the suburbs maintain it's preference for chains, it isn't hard to appreciate how East Sacramento's eateries have been mastering a balance between the two. Patron is precisely that: A Mexican restaurant that provides familiarity, but with out being predictable, and excitement without being avant grade. Whether it's for a nice tequila or cervesa with friends, or a dinner with the family. Patron satisfies all tastes and moods.
