The Firehouse Restaurant Review: With its elegant setting, American cuisine and professional service, The Firehouse is one of the top choices for a celebratory meal in Sacramento. Located in a converted nineteenth-century fire station, the interior is awash in period charm, with Victorian antiques, sparkling chandeliers and gilded paintings. Also impressive is the outdoor courtyard, with its tranquil shade trees, ivy-draped brick walls and soothing fountain. Chef Deneb Williams’ starters include such delights as pork belly with brandy-caramelized apricots and a white corn-lobster bisque. Entrées include filet mignon with bone marrow butter, lemon grass curry coconut sea scallops and wine-braised Tuscan veal cheeks. Desserts, crafted by pastry chef Jill Berger, include an apricot frangipane tartlet and a praline torte with orange-scented risotto pudding. Be sure to enjoy your meal with a selection from the wine list, one of the most comprehensive in the city with options from around the globe, including an extensive array of rare wines.
