American Restaurants: City Beverage
Saturday, 2004 October 23 - 12:38 pm
It sounds like a place where frat boys buy kegs, but it's not.

City Beverage is a kitschy little place, with twenty different beers on tap, a variety of coffees and pastries, and a full dinner menu in a funky atmosphere. So yes, you can find burgers and chicken wings on the menu, but it's not your usual bar fare. The burgers are a trademark: mini-burgers piled high with Angus beef and fresh condiments. The wings similarly imaginative, served in a delicate vinegar sauce.

The rest of the menu consists of upscale New American entrees like herb-crusted tuna, jerk-crusted Mahi, barbecue shrimp sandwiches, as well as steaks and pasta dishes. It's a large menu with something for just about every taste (and every size wallet). All the dishes we tried came out flavorful and well-prepared.

The wait staff is competent and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere (though a bit loud) was charming.
