Hook & Ladder, the new restaurant replacing the former Hangar 17 at 17th & S, will be open by the end of September, reports Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
Owned by the same folks behind midtown's Golden Bear, a popular pub that's been featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive Ins and Dives," Hook & Ladder will feature an expanded menu and cocktail program run by Chris Tucker, one of Sacramento's top bartenders. The menu will be overseen by Brian Mizner, the Golden Bear's current executive chef and an alum of L Wine Lounge and the late-great Masque in El Dorado Hills. The menu's still being fine tuned, but expect a more entree options than featured at Golden Bear along with a range of small plates.
The 4,800 square foot space includes an additional front and back patio, along with some unique concepts which will be revealed soon. While Golden Bear also features DJs and dancing, Hook & Ladder will focus squarely on food and drink for now.

Sac Press's Brandon Darnell says that much of the restaurant's details are being kept secret.
The menu at the restaurant located at 1630 S St. is nearly complete, but Bazett said he’s keeping tight-lipped on what, exactly, will be on it.
“We’re trying to be as secretive as possible,” he said. “We don’t want too many details, except that there’s going to be a lot of handmade stuff. We’re trying to do all of our baking in-house, have handmade pasta, homemade sausages and farmers market-sourced produce as much as possible.”
He’s being equally mum about the interior of the building, saying that not even the workers are permitted to take photos with camera phones.

Krush Burger food truck to open first restaurant in Sacramento River District - One of Sacramento’s favorite food trucks is expanding to a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the River District north of downtown. Krush Burger – formerly the MiniBurger truck – is expected to open in the new California Lottery Headquarters at 700 North 10th St. sometime in December, owner Davin Vculek said. “It’s going to be our first restaurant,” he said. “That’s why we started this company: to build a quick-service restaurant.” Brandon Darnell in Sac Press.
Krush Burger: A 'new era' food truck with great food, prices - Krush Burger, owned and operated by Davin Vculek since 2011, is a convenient and portable food truck traveling around Sacramento. These miniature hamburgers became popular fast, causing the burger joint—formerly known as Mini Burger—to revamp its image as well as equipment, in March of this year. It came back as Krush Burger, a “new era” food truck fully equipped to fit their needs as well as their customers’. They have been so successful that they will be expanding the operation quite a bit come September. “We actually have another new truck that’ll be here in the next two weeks, and we also just broke ground on our first restaurant on Monday, which will open in mid-December,” Vculek said.
