Charm cannot be defined by a stunningly tender kebab or by the cool seduction of grape leaves stuffed with rice, chick peas, tomato, herbs, lemon juice and olive oil. Charm cannot be colored by a handmade table or by the romance of outdoor seating, but it can be discovered in the welcome of a community-oriented co-founder who understands the tangibility of delight and of authenticity.
Old City Cafe and Grill
offers a high-caliber take on the Mediterranean fare, bringing forward a cascade of flavors that are illustrated by a broad selection of well-sourced and meticulously fresh ingredients. The cafe promises a composition of Middle Eastern dimensions, drawn from the experiences of its curious Lebanese and Israeli partners.
It is precisely the type of experience that an appreciative town like Cranford
, just 25 miles west of New York City, can embrace. Cranford is home to a notable spectrum of restaurant choices - from French bistro and Italian to sushi and Asian fusion - and a Mediterranean grill of this quality is certain to be a metropolitan draw.
A patron of the Old City Cafe and Grill can expect to be spoiled by a delicious array of choices, all of which originate from a true grade A quality and the kind of farm-to-table freshness that colors the experience and infuses an array of sophistication for the palate that induces the kind of complexity that inspires a keen reminder of why we go out to eat in the first place.
