Firestone Public House

by

On a recent Friday evening, I had a serious craving for a cold hoppy beer and some food to go with it. I love a good ale house and the newly-opened Firestone Public House on the corner of 16 and L Streets seemed like a bustling spot I needed to try.
First and foremost was my hankering for a cold beer. My desire was quickly fulfilled the second I set my eyes on the vast selection of beers on tap; wheat, stout, IPA, Pilsner, literally something for every craving.  I selected the Lagunitas Pilsner, which is one of my favorites!

Next, my dining partner and I were tasked with the seemingly impossible mission of selecting something to have for dinner.  Firestone has a really great menu and nearly everything sounded delicious to the both of us.

My final selection, the Shrimp Fettuccini, was superb. The fettuccini itself was fresh and cooked perfectly with large helpings of shrimp, corn, cherry tomatoes, garlic, basil and parmesan all tossed in a light and creamy sauce. Pasta is usually one dish that always leaves me with leftovers, but not with this number, I ate every last bite.
My dining partner chose the Grilled Salmon, which upon sneaking a bite, was cooked wonderfully. The dish came with summer beans, tomatoes, yellow corn and a spicy tomato sauce that provided a generous kick.

I asked about whether these two selections were standard options and the waitress informed us that the menu has a tendency to change as the chef prefers to use locally-sourced and in-season ingredients.

Overall, Firestone Public House is a great addition to the Sacramento dining scene. They feature a standard happy hour Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m., as well as late night happy hours Sunday from 9 p.m. to close, and Monday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to close. My next visit will certainly be to check out their robust brunch menu!
