City Limits Turns 10
City Limits, the popular Stamford dining destination, celebrates 10 years of “redefining classic diner fare” starting this month. As part of the celebration, each month chef Peter Assue and pastry chef Tracy Assue (yes, they’re a couple) are bringing back to the menu their favorite entrées and desserts from the past 10 years. Visit before month’s end and you can enjoy wild mushroom ravioli with shaved Parmesan and truffle oil, and top that off with a slice of espresso mascarpone torte. The April menu brings back roast monkfish with lobster corn hash and curry mango oil and chocolate hazelnut crunch torte, while the May retro specials are crab-and-ginger-crusted salmon with stir-fry veggies, and rice pudding with blueberry compote. Mark your calendars now! By the way, fresh fish is a specialty at City Limits, so keep that in mind if you’re looking for Lenten-friendly choices.
Mayor Mike Pavia saluted the unique diner-grill-bar-bakery, and the owners, the Livanos family, last Friday, March 23, by declaring it City Limits Day in Stamford, and delivered a proclamation to that effect to the applause of loyal patrons.
