Randall Selland, the Chef and Owner of The Kitchen Restaurant, Selland's Market Café, and Ella Dining Room & Bar, has been cooking up one of California's most sought after meals for over 18 years. This has made dinner at his restaurant “The Kitchen” one of the toughest reservations in the state to get your hands on.
Using classic French techniques with California's bounty of world class ingredients and an unparalleled amount of energy combined with Vaudevillian theatrics Randall Selland is able to produce and present bold yet refined meals that will dazzle all your senses.
Mike Dunne of The Sacramento Bee describes Randall's restaurant as “Sacramento's most entertaining and distinctive dining destination.” He says it is a “checklist of what a restaurant should provide” referring to The Kitchen's ambience, refined service, creative cuisine, fun atmosphere and award winning wine list.
Randall's “Demonstration Dinners” provide as much entertainment as any Broadway show combining an informative yet humorous presentation with a meal that is polished and intriguing. He parades around the room bantering with his guests showing them the rare wild mushrooms, live lobsters, fresh fish and other special ingredients they will be enjoying in their meal.
The Kitchen captures the elusive elements of fun and excitement that escapes most fine dining restaurants, but don't be fooled, Randall's food is still unparalleled.
