The restaurant's menu offers a broad selection of dishes that go beyond typical diner fare: Oriental chicken salad, grilled salmon sandwich with asparagus and mushrooms, veal meatloaf with mushroom gravy and homemade desserts and breads. A three-course prix-fixe dinner ($21.95) is offered Mon to Fri from 5 pm on. Open every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Best Breakfast 2012
You're meeting a client for a mid-morning breakfast and the generic town diner is just too dreary and the neighborhood luncheonette too informal. City Limits Diner is a centrally located alternative where the cheerful digs, timely service, and high-end approach to diner fare should put a positive spin on your sales pitch. Once the smoked salmon omelet and challah French toast have been finished and the contract signed, celebrate by sending your client back to their office with a box of pecan sticky buns. That's thinking ahead to the contract renewal.
French baguettes are tasty enough plain but reach another level of crunchy goodness when Chef Tracy Kamperdyk Assue adds roasted garlic and imported Parmesan. The diner serves the baguette as part of their dinner breadbasket as well as with some soups, though you can pick a whole one up at the in-store bakery ($3.95). It makes a perfect counterpoint to antipasto, or toasted and crumbled as croutons.
