4th Street Grill, a Sacramento mainstay, is being forced out of its present location due to a lease issue, says its owner to FOX 40.
If you’re from Sacramento then more than likely you’ve been to the 4th Street Bar and Grille. But soon, the place will no longer be open to the general public for business — this after being forced out of their lease.
“This is a landmark day in Sacramento; I am getting calls off the hook. I have been here 21 years. I have seen generations of families come and go. We have celebrated anniversaries here, births of children and we had three 20-year anniversaries here for the people I presented with their rings … proposing and this day comes to a sad end,” says Ron Fleming, the owner of the 4th Street Bar and Grill.
FOX40 News learned from the owner that the restaurant is closing their doors for good. Fleming leased the property, but did not own it. Now he’s been told he’s got to go.
For those who want one last meal or drink at the restaurant, the restaurant's last day will be Friday, with proceeds going to charity.

Beef it Up - Here's a tasty option for those seeking locally raised meat to throw on the summer barbecue: Lucky Dog Ranch. Located in Dixon and owned by Terri and Ron Gilliland, Lucky Dog Ranch raises cattle “humanely”—allowing them to graze in herds on pastures—and without hormones, stimulants or steroids. The beef is dry-aged and vacuum sealed before being sold in local markets (including Taylor's Market and Elliott's Natural Foods) and at farmers markets (Saturday at Country Club Plaza and Sunday at Eighth and W streets). If you want to sample before buying, head to Roxy Restaurant & Bar or Lucca Restaurant & Bar—owned by the Gillilands—which both offer Lucky Dog Ranch beef burgers as well as a few other options featuring the ranch's meat.
