Soft light emanates from candles and wall sconces positioned throughout the interior of City Tavern, whose hearty and affordable American cuisine remains one of the Marina’s better-kept secrets. While diners bask in an ambiance that invokes the cozy sophistication of a 1940s tavern, their eyes scan a menu that boasts a litany of pan-American starters, from gooey southwestern chicken quesadillas to onion rings inspired by the shape of the Space Needle’s observation deck. Soups, salads, and pizzas make for light or shareable lunches, and succulent slices of chicken, beef, or turkey grace sandwiches. Servers pile lunch and dinner plates seven days a week, and brunch melds sweet and savory flavors on weekends.
