Husband and wife team of Chef Randall Selland and Chef Nancy Zimmer, along with their grown children Josh Nelson and Tamera Baker, founded The Kitchen Restaurant in 1991. The family was among the first to emphasize “Farm-to-Fork” dining in the Sacramento region over twenty years ago. They’ve been building relationship and supporting local farmers, growers, ranchers and artisan producers since the inception of The Kitchen. The quality, commitment, and passion that the Selland family brings to The Kitchen have created a landmark restaurant that has sold out nightly for more than twenty years.
The Kitchen Restaurant has earned every imaginable local and regional award along with an impressive list of national accolades, including the AAA Five Diamond Award five years running, a nod as a semi-finalist for the James Beard “Outstanding Restaurant” Award, the highest Zagat ratings, and honors from Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast, as well as inclusion in the Yelp Top 100 and the Open Table Top 100.
