This new midtown eatery from chef-owner Minnie Nguyen, who also owns South Sacramento’s Firehouse Crawfish with husband Trinh Le, opened in the former Sapporo Grill location in 2016, transforming the space into a modern-industrial, sure-to-be hot spot—think cushy red booths, floor-to-ceiling windows and a wall emblazoned with “Station 16” in block lettering. The menu is seafood-forward: Belly up to the raw oyster bar for freshly shucked shellfish, or indulge in a succulent lobster roll—with huge chunks of expertly dressed lobster meat on a toasted bun—or a signature shellfish skillet featuring prawns or crab tossed in either roasted garlic butter or a spicy Cajun sauce known as “The Works.” The seafood-averse can eat happy too, with selections like the galbi fries, topped with Korean beef, kimchi and a fried egg, and inventive cocktails like the Hot El Bombero, a fiery blend of tequila, lime, grapefruit and ginger beer with Thai chilies.
