The Downtown Commons will soon come with a big slab of beef.

Echo & Rig Steakhouse has been announced as a new tenant for the so-called DoCo entertainment and shopping complex adjacent to Golden 1 Center. Echo & Rig is expected to open in the fall.

Like many of the DoCo’s primary restaurant tenants, Echo & Rig has its business roots outside of Sacramento. The flagship location of the steakhouse, which was founded by chef Sam Marvin, is located in Las Vegas.

Other Downtown Commons tenants include the Bay Area-based Sauced BBQ & Spirits, which opened recently at the former Hard Rock Cafe location. Punch Bowl Social, which oversees eight other locations around the country, and the Houston-based State Fare Kitchen & Bar are expected to open in Downtown Commons in the coming months.

Echo & Rig will occupy more than 8,000 square feet of space on the ground floor of a mixed-use tower situated at Downtown Commons. Its Las Vegas location includes an array of steaks, seafood dishes, sandwiches and salads.

“We’re thrilled to have Chef Sam Marvin’s second location in Sacramento and look forward to seeing it complement the excitement in DoCo,” Sacramento Kings president Chris Granger said in a statement.

There are plenty of places within walking distance to get a beer or something harder before or after an event at Sacramento's Golden 1 Center. Bee reporter Ed Fletcher breaks down a few in October 2016.
