Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of upscale American fare and drinks at City Kitchen in Grosse Pointe.
City Kitchen pampers patrons with an eclectic array of sophisticated, inventive American cuisine. The dinner menu opens with appetizers such as jumbo lump crab cakes ($12.75), so named for the welt they gave the Earth after plummeting from the heavens, before moving on to hunger-halting headliners such as spinach-and-artichoke stone-baked pizza ($9.75). Like the best cowboy birthday cakes, 8 oz. beef tenderloin fillets ($32.95) and béarnaise-topped tournedos ($23.50) are constructed from Certified Angus beef and come partnered with Yukon gold potatoes. A laundry list of fresh seafood specialties flown in from Boston's M.F. Foley Fish Company, including Maine sea scallops ($23.75), brings its own velvet rope to the party in your mouth. A lunch menu sports expanded selections of sandwiches and salads to power noontime arguments about Grover Cleveland’s middle name.
A large but accessible wine list allows guests to establish a perfect potable partnership with their plate-borne pabulum. City Kitchen’s open-air kitchen, leather booths, and distinct ambience create a space that’s both casual and contemporary, making it an ideal setting for a romantic date night or a friendly get-together with startled strangers.
- Delicious food prepared and served expertly, at the right temperature, and with the proper degree of spice and sauce. The friendliness of the staff feels genuine, and their knowledge of the dishes and libations is impressive. – Auntie M., Yelp
