Echo & Rig
500 J St.
Sacramento , CA 95814 916-619-8939
Situated on the ground floor of the Kimpton Sawyer hotel at DoCo, this new contemporary steakhouse by chef Sam Marvin is a carnivore’s dream, with a menu highlighting both traditional beef cuts like rib-eye and filet mignon, and lesser-known varieties like Spencer and bavette, each of which gets served with a mushroom Rockefeller (filled with Parmesan, bacon and breadcrumbs) and standout garlic kettle chips. Non-beef meat and seafood options also abound—including the lamb porterhouse, pasture-raised chicken and horseradish-crusted butterfish with pinot noir sauce—but herbivores won’t be out of luck with noteworthy vegetarian items like Echo & Rig’s signature crispy Portobello fries, its delicate flash-fried spinach salad with chili-lime vinaigrette, and the roasted cauliflower flavored with Fresno chilies and what Marvin describes as “brown sugar crack.” The extensive wine list, bevy of cool craft cocktails—like the Smoked Sage Daisy, a margarita-like drink made with smoked sage agave, or the house Old Fashioned with bacon-washed bourbon—and texture-rich setting (think butcher block-inspired wall art and black leather booths) also help make this steakhouse a cut above.
