Need to get sustenance before a night of dancing? A meal at the right restaurant or diner will get you on the dance floor for hours.

While Saturday, May 21 may seem far way, those who are focused on prom know that the trip to The Library Galleria in Sacramento will be here before they know it. There’s a lot to get ready for and, while the majority of concerns are about transportation and appearances, it is wise to plan for the inevitable: Where should you go eat?

There are options to fit every budget, from an affordable and casual restaurant to a fancy, high class restaurant. It all depends on where you and your date or friends want to go and how much fits into your budget.
