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 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, upscale menu features eclectic contemporary fare both lavish and light, ranging from raw and baked local oysters to wild boar and Wagyu meatloaf, and spaghetti and crab meatballs. Those with a sweet tooth can consider a Meyer lemon tart or the peanut butter and jelly cheesecake. Weekends bring an à la carte brunch with international offerings like a kimchi breakfast wrap and a Latin hash.
