After just four months in business, Harvey House in Old Sacramento has abruptly shut its doors. The restaurant, which opened at Second and I streets in the former Fulton's Prime Rib, focused on a railroad-themed decor and American cuisine (think: prime rib, chicken fried steak, meatloaf, porkchops). Harvey House was modeled after a restaurant chain which was popular at southwest train stations from the late-1800s through 1950.
The phone number for Old Sacramento's Harvey House has been disconnected. Co-owner Simon Mandell could not be reached for comment about the closure, but Harvey House's Twitter account alludes to the restaurant's apparent financial problems. A tweet posted on Aug. 7 says, "Simon, please pay us. You have a plan right? We put our faith in you. You promised us all."
We'll follow up with more information as it comes through.
