Coast to Coast Sandwiches team to take over Republic's food program


"Appetizers" reported on Monday that Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen was pulling out of Republic Bar & Grill to consolidate its operations at an upcoming McClellan Park location. Drewski's was among the first of Sacramento's mobile food vendors to branch into operating a brick-and-mortar eatery, and will finish its year-and-a-half stint at Republic on Sept. 1.

Another mobile food vendor is already in line to take over Republic's food program. The team behind the Coast to Coast Sandwiches food truck, which also operates the kitchen at midtown's Pour House, will begin running Republic's kitchen starting Sept. 4.

Instead of branding Republic's food program under the Coast to Coast Sandwiches banner, the team of Robert Ramos (pictured above) and Sean Figueroa will introduce a new business called Capitol Burger Kitchen. As the name states, burgers will be the focus here along with other hearty foods that pair well in a sports bar setting.

"We plan to make the transition very seamless," said Ramos. "We want to match the food with the clientele. Republic is a very fun spot, and we want to have a lot of fun with the menu."

Check back soon for a preview of Capitol Burger Kitchen's menu and other plans for their space at Republic.
