City Cafe Restaurant Review

: When this casual Mt. Vernon eatery added an airy dining room and full dinner menu to its original quick-service café, it brought a much-needed venue to midtown, with great appeal for neighborhood residents and theatergoers alike. The redecorated dining room is a winner, with modern styling, mid-century accents, and large windows bringing in a view of Eager Street. The updated, upscaled menu features eclectic contemporary fare both lavish and light, ranging from fried Maryland oysters with blue cheese and hot sauce to grilled Moroccan chicken to prosciutto-wrapped lamb and veal meatloaf. Weekends bring an à la carte brunch.
