Mulvaney’s Building & Loan serves deliciously inventive, upscale California cuisine and cocktails in midtown Sacramento. They specialize in stylish sustainable local and organic food in season presented with warmth and sophistication. The menu is creative and detail oriented. For example, when you’re seated, bread is presented with unsalted butter and red salt in an albacore shell alongside a fun and usually interesting amuse bouche.

The restaurant attempts to be a kind and generous steward of the local community. In addition to recycling and other common environmentally-minded efforts, the to-go containers are made from recycled materials. Mulvaney’s also has established an in-house giving program to provide training in the food service industry and help create access to healthy food for underserved youth.

Mulvaney throws a “Family Meal” party for the public on the 4th Monday of every month in the adjoining banquet hall. Reservations are needed and patrons are seated at round tables with people they may or may not know. It’s a fun way to meet others as interested in superb food as you are. You can find out about upcoming events in the hall by becoming a friend of Mulvaney’s B&L on Facebook.

In addition to the dining room, Mulvaney’s has a beautifully landscaped patio that is perfect for date night or getting together with friends.

Mulvaney’s Building & Loan is located at 1215 19th St. in Downtown Sacramento. Phone number is (916) 441-6022. Web site is
