City Kitchen is the result of long-time restaurateur Chick Taylor and his desire to bring excellent seafood, steaks and hearth-fired pizzas close to home. He envisioned a neighborhood eatery that serves unique, quality fare in an upscale, yet casual setting.
That vision became a reality when City Kitchen opened its doors in May 2006, after Taylor spent months handcrafting the restaurant’s distinct interior. Featuring a wood-burning pizza oven, open-air kitchen, leather-upholstered booths, oak plank tables and a zinc-topped bar often filled with diners, City Kitchen’s ambiance was unlike any other gastronomic establishment Grosse Pointe residents had experienced.
Taylor brings more than two decades of culinary experience to City Kitchen’s restaurant, and in- and off-site catering operations. One can see this vast knowledge reflected within each of City Kitchen’s dishes. Come in and enjoy such delicious seafood favorites as fire roasted Eastern halibut, grilled Atlantic salmon, flounder stuffed with crabmeat, pan-seared sea scallops and sautéed, skinless perch. From the grill, try a “Certified Angus” 8 oz. filet of beef tenderloin, 14 oz. New York strip steak, and much more. Also enjoy seasonal salads, desserts and appetizers, including mussels pastis, rare-seared tuna with edamame and tomato relish, cajun tenderloin tips and shrimp casalinga. All menu items are available for carry-out.
Join us for a special evening or casual get-together with friends. We look forward to seeing you!
