Echo & Rig is a New American steakhouse located at 500 J St. inside the Sawyer Hotel. Executive chef Sam Marvin has brought the concept of a steakhouse with an in-house butcher to Sacramento from the original Echo & Rig in Las Vegas, as Sacramento Magazine reports. Interior Designer Carolyn Baylon with TBHG a Los Angeles Based Design studio designed both Locations Vegas and Sacramento with a timeless minimalistic Design.Jerry Stien Kitchen designer/consultant Project leader with GRD Los Angeles.
Thanks to that in-house butcher and team, a wider variety of cuts are on offer at Echo & Rig than at a typical steakhouse, including hanger, bavette, skirt, flat iron and tri-tip. And large, shareable steaks like the 42-ounce T-bone are brought raw to the table for inspection before cooking.
Diners can accompany the meal with sides like potato gnocchi with mint-pea pesto or portobello fries with herbed aioli. Echo & Rig is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves brunch on weekends.
Echo & Rig’s current Yelp rating of four stars out of 105 reviews indicates the newcomer is off to a strong start.
“A wonderful and elegantly executed meal!” wrote Yelper Amber K., who reviewed Echo & Rig on May 29. “The carne asada marrow and fries were both pretty fantastic.”
“I am very glad I tried multiple items rather than just one, everything had so much flavor and was tender and perfectly cooked,” noted Rachael G., who strongly recommended reservations for customers hoping to come on a weekend or during an event at the Golden 1 Center.
Echo & Rig is open from 7 a.m.–9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.–11 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m.–3 p.m. and 4–11 p.m. on weekends.
