Grand City Grille (phone disconnected)

Ideally situated for lunch for New Center workers and for dinner before and after the shows at the Fisher Theatre, the restaurant has an impressive atmosphere, with the art deco ceiling, gauzy, ceiling-to-floor curtains and large picture windows that provide views of the New Center’s impressive buildings. Despite the relative elegance of the setting, the fare is moderately priced with most of the eclectic main courses running less than $20 (add $3 for soup or a salad). The sophisticated wine list, however, befits a somewhat more expensive venue. Expect classics (oysters Rockefeller, confit of duck, lobster Newburgh on toast points) and some more down-home fare (homemade tater tots, chicken pops and paddles and shrimp corn dogs). Vegetarians will have to make do with a salad or Shanghai noodles. Deserves to be considered as a destination in its own right, and not merely a convenient place to dine while awaiting a night at the show.
