"Groundbreakers Q&A" with Two of Sacramento's Top Chefs

One of our favorite conversations in 20190 was with two guys who know their way around a kitchen.

Rick Mahan and Patrick Mulvaney are two of longest-running and most-admired chefs in Sacramento. Their restaurants, The Waterboy (opened in 1996) and Mulvaney B&L (in 2006), set the bar for fine dining in this city, and they're still atop the list of places worth opening up your wallet for a memorable meal.

Join us for a great conversation with these two seasoned veterans of the city's ever-changing, often-challenging restaurant scene as we talk with them about Michelin stars, minimum wage hikes, the mental health movement, farmers markets, and other things that are shaping their menus today.
