Larry Sheingold

Larry Sheingold lives in Sacramento with his wife Judy. He is member of the Committee of Bar Examiners for the California State Bar.

The Sheingolds are also food tourists. They take frequent trips around California and the country, seeking out noted white tablecloth restaurants as well as the best hot dogs, burgers and pastrami sandwiches, ethnic cuisines and ice cream.

Their true loves are one-of-a-kind, family-run eateries, neighborhood old haunts and the original restaurants that started spin-offs and offspring in the world of public dining.

American culture is more than just museums and art galleries, Larry says. It’s also reflected in the way we eat; in the cooks and kitchens and servers and independent restaurateurs that make this the golden era of dining out.

Larry is a retired staffer for the State Legislature and a member of the California State Senate Staff Alumni Association Steering Committee.
