Foodie News: Mason’s is Getting a Makeover!


The upscale Mason’s restaurant, known for its Modern American Cuisine, will close its doors on February 15 for a complete transformation and will reopen in mid-March as Cafeteria 15L.

The switch from Mason’s upscale fine dining to Cafeteria 15L will offer more affordable American comfort cuisine with a classic flair. Traditional dishes like homemade burgers, meatloaf, pot pies, and mac ‘n cheese are just a few of the menu items that will be served in Cafeteria’s whimsical urban atmosphere. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will feature sliding wood barn doors to create private dining, and will include industrial and antique elements.

Co-owner, Mason Wong, says Cafeteria will be “very approachable, welcoming families, young downtowners, and business people on the go.” Cafeteria will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. And for all you late-nighters, Cafeteria will be open ‘till 3 a.m. Thursday –Saturday!

    Loving all the recent trending toward comfort food – I wonder if it will be a fad or have staying power in Sacramento?!

    I am deeply saddened by this. Masons was one of my favorite restaurants. It will be sorely missed. I’m too adult to go to the Park, but I went to Mason’s because it was a great place to celebrate anything. The food was awesome. I have no desire to go to 15 and L to get a burger or Mac ‘n Cheese.

    How disappointing.

    Cafeteria 15 L is going to be amazing. Look at menus by the best of the best..Thomas Keller at Ad Hoc with his buttermilk fried chicken and comfort food items has seen nothing but success! I look forward to what Mason and the design team from the W Hotels have in store for Sacramento.

    I’m sad to see Mason’s go away. I applaud them for changing direction before it became to late to do so.

    Comfort food tends to be a winner in Sacramento, and I suspect they will have good business. I am, however, disheartened by the choice of moniker. The word “cafeteria” takes me back to less than pleasant meals in grade school. On the East Coast many restaurants are known as cafeterias… and they tend to be lower end.

    While I’m sure that the food will be tasty, I hope that the general public gets past the name to find out.
