FOODIE FIND: Gaslight Company

Gaslight Company, sited on Sutter Street proper and named in honor of the original Gaslight building that it’s located in, is everything a beer bar should be: 27 rotating brews on tap (many local) along with ciders and an impressive wine list. It’s also home to every buzzed craving possible—from delicious cheese boards to flatbread specialty pizzas. I recently stopped by and instantly felt at ease; the atmosphere was relaxed, light and lively (thanks to the sounds of classic rock) with indoor-outdoor seating, and the staff was so friendly I couldn’t differentiate between them and the customers. Pumped for a pint, I started the night off with one of their most popular beers: Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat. It smelled exactly like the citrus fruit I love and had a refreshing taste, smooth finish and buttery IPA finish. Other patrons’ food looked (and smelled) too good to pass up, so I ordered a Turkey Chipotle Sandwich. Loaded with sliced turkey, melted fontina, sautéed onions, fresh peppers and chipotle aioli on a sweet French roll, it was a mouthwatering mouthful of goodness. Of course, I proceeded to eat the entire thing—it was that good. Beyond their impressive menu and large banquet room, Gaslight also offers live music on weekends, Tuesday night trivia and an open mic night on Wednesdays, so there’s plenty of reasons to pull up a chair and get comfortable. Gaslight Company, 718 Sutter Street Suite 200, Folsom, 916-358-9447.
