A much-anticipated new downtown restaurant, Hock Farm Crafts & Provisions, is set to open for lunch and dinner on Thursday. Named after the first large-scale agricultural settlement in Northern California, John Sutter’s Hock Farm (established in 1841), the restaurant aims to showcase “the Sacramento region’s rich history and bountiful terrain.” Hock Farm is located in the former Spataro sit-down restaurant space on L street, and is owned in partnership with three former Paragary Restaurant Group employees: Executive Chef David LaRoche, and Managing Partners Shaun Freeman and Brad Peters.
The restaurant’s menu will change with the season and availability of local produce, “paying homage,” notes the website, “to the region’s rich history of agriculture.” Daily “market’ specials” will also be available, and many of the kitchen’s ingredients will be sourced directly from farmers and the city’s farmers’ markets. The bar program will feature an array of classic cocktails, “often re-imagined with local produce and locally-produced goods.”
