When we sat down we had to take quite a bit of time to review the cocktail list. There were was such an amazing variety of options. Sometimes I feel like a menu will be mostly gin or vodka, but not here: they had everything! AM and I chose the to start with the Cool Hand Cuke, which had cucumber vodka, blackberries and pomagrante juice.

MR ordered the Mango Mule, which had vodka, mango puree, ginger beer, and lime juice.
I have been seeing it more recently, but City Table had quite a few drinks with ginger beer. I guess it is not just for the Dark and Stormy anymore!
Round 2: AM got the French 75 martini that had beefeater gin, lemon juice, and champagne.

It may seem like we spent most of the night drinking fun cocktails, but we did actually order some food as well! While we were enjoying our first round of refreshments, we got to indulge in some warm rolls. Having seen and had many different types of sliced bread, I have missed the more traditional roll.

We decided to order the Pancetta and Asparagus Pizza with ricotta cheese, fresh mozzarella, basil, and roma tomato.
We also shared the Duck Confit Spring Rolls with mint peanut sauce.
For dinner, since we had been indulging throughout the evening, we all stuck to the smaller items rather than going for the entree meals. MR ordered the House Made Burrata Cheese with heirloom and cherry tomatoes, watermelon croutons, baby arugula, sea salt, crushed pistachios and a raspberry-balsamic dressing.
Both AM and I ordered the Sliders 3 Ways - I mean, three little sandwiches including a burger? How could I pass that up?! The plate had a sirloin burger, Maine lobster roll and a crab cake. While it is generally served with fries, given the rest of what we ate and my lunch that day, I went with green beans.

City Bar is definitely worth the trip, whether just for cocktails or a full meal. The servers were very friendly, letting us sit for awhile on a busy Saturday night. The menu was extensive for both the food and cocktails. I will be making a return visit soon.
