Fuel Cafe Restaurant Review

: Most of the seating at Fuel Café is on the breezy outdoor patio. Since the café was once home to an automobile repair shop, the outdoor space is larger than the cramped indoors. But there is limited inside seating for days when patio dining just isn’t seasonally appropriate. Décor is simple but kitschy, and the café has a Midtown hipster vibe. Classically trained chef Erik Proveaux’s seasonal menu includes the local favorite bison burger topped with caramelized onions and apple wood-smoked bacon, and a vegan burger that even appeals to meat-eaters. Daily seafood specials always feature wild-caught --- never farmed --- fish. You’ll generally always find the steak served with fries, and the vegetarian walnut meatloaf with smashed potatoes and leek mushroom gravy. Brunch features traditional dishes (migas, french toast, vegan biscuits and gravy) and the non-traditional (chili cheese fries, Gulf shrimp hash). For dessert, consider the apple crisp deluxe or the vegan cheesecake. Bring your own wine for a mere $5 corkage fee.
