Husband-and-wife owners Mark and Stephanie Miller opened Rio City Café in 1994 in a stylishly rustic building designed to resemble a steamship warehouse from the late 1800s. The concept was perfect. The Sacramento restaurant blends seamlessly with the quaint, historic charms of the Old Sacramento riverfront.
Smoked tenderloin carpaccio. Lobster bisque. Filet mignon. Veal porterhouse. Famed for perennial excellence, The Firehouse Restaurant has been a not-to-be-missed destination for more than 55 years. Housed in a building from 1853 that served as home for the Sacramento No. 3 Fire Brigade, the elegant dining spot was Ronald Reagan’s favorite Sacramento restaurant during his eight years as governor—and it’s easy to see why.
