#33 City Cafe
#33 City Cafe
Mid-Town Belevedere

The conversion, in late 2013, of the original cafe into a warmly welcoming lounge space was just the latest example of forward progress at this deservedly popular midtown spot.

Jared Rhine has settled nicely into the executive chef position, keeping the menu accessible. Guests know they’ll find something good, comforting and well prepared at City Cafe, whether it’s for brunch, a rainy Monday night or before a symphony concert.

The original bar, by the way, is still in place, if you get a nostalgic hankering for a cosmopolitan.
