Mulvaney’s Building & Loan
A staple in Sacramento’s fine dining scene, Mulvaney’s is situated in a glorious old firehouse space, and is lovingly tended to by owners Patrick and Bobbin Mulvaney. The setting is both elegant and romantic, a revival of old-world charm coupled with a fresh local menu based on the changing offerings from area farmers, ranchers and vintners, including vegetables from Full Belly and Del Rio farms, and fish from Passmore Ranch. For something sweet, look for luscious creations such as the off-the-menu Valrhona chocolate ding dong. Idiosyncratic touches, like the check being delivered in an old book, add a dash of personality to the experience.
