SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Two Sacramento-area restaurants have earned the prestigious Bib Gourmand award from the Michelin Guide this year. Roseville’s Nixtaco and Sacramento’s Yue Huang are among the 45 newcomers to the Bib Gourmand awards in California for 2021, the Michelin Guide announced on Wednesday.

"As much as we have made strides, it still seems that they're not as big as we'd like," said Cathy Rodríguez Aguirre, president and CEO of the Sacramento Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SACHCC), speaking from the State of Hispanics 2021 event. "I think it's because we're a very positive community and we talk about a person who graduated or 'this is what happened' and we're excited about it, but the reality is the percentages are still less than 20%."
