Ernesto Delgado planning new restaurant in West Sacramento – Sacramento Business Journal – The Business Journals

After previous proposals for the Parrish Garage property 422-424 C St. in West Sacramento came and went, the newest concept would mean the end of the ’60s-era building.
Ernesto Delgado, the restaurateur behind La Cosecha and Mayahuel in Sacramento, is planning to redevelop the site with a new concept involving food and nightlife called La Ciudad.
“The buildings would be approximately 22 feet in height and the building is proposed to be ±4,000 square feet and would include a restaurant with interior and exterior seating, a market, and ice cream/coffee bar,” according to an item for design review before the West Sacramento Planning Commission on April 21.
Delgado didn’t respond to an email sent last week about the proposal. According to the agenda item, there would also be a separate restroom building on C Street and an outdoor bar between two buildings.
Between the street and the main building would be a small plaza, divided by the pedestrian entrances and the restrooms/outdoor bar.
Plans with the agenda item show the main restaurant of La Ciudad would be called Mixili, along with El Mercado marketplace, Cafe Maya coffee/ice cream stand and Popoca patio bar. Those plans show both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as an outdoor stage next to the plaza.
As far back as 2015, West Sacramento city officials have sought to find a new use for the Parrish Garage property, which the city acquired in 1994 for a street widening project. The site is less than a mile from the city’s riverfront and within its redeveloping Washington neighborhood.
After various proposals came forward but didn’t get traction, Ernesto Delgado Hospitality Group acquired the .28-acre property from the city about a year ago, according to the agenda item. However, property records show the city still owns the property, suggesting transfer is contingent on a new proposal moving forward.
Though the city’s previous efforts to find a use for the property urged incorporation of the existing building, engineers for Ernesto Delgado Hospitality Group determined it wasn’t structurally sound enough to use. The La Ciudad proposal would demolish the building.
