CityGate Grille - Naperville
Whether for business or pleasure, a party or a romantic rendezvous, CityGate Grille in Naperville provides the atmosphere – and the wide range of food and drink – to please any diner in grand style.
Though recognized as a superb steakhouse, Naperville’s CityGate Grille has a menu that includes lots of seafood and vegetarian options. The atmosphere conveys a jazzy supper club vibe, and its location in the well-known Calamos Investments building means there’s a sizeable number of business dinners at lunch and dinner…but everyone is comfortable at CityGate Grille, and the highly trained staff knows how to make any diner feel at home.
The menu offers a range of surf and turf items, and an excellent way to start is with one (or two) of the innovative appetizers, like the bacon shrimp or buttermilk calamari, both light and likely to stimulate your taste buds for more.
Prime from the Grill options are skirt steak with chimichurri, filet, New York strip and ribeye with red wine demi-glace, as well as a bone-in ribeye with bordelaise.
From the sea, there’s lobster linguine (which makes for an excellent starter/pasta course before your steak), pan-seared sea scallops, blackened mahi mahi, roasted Greek bass and pesto salmon with melted feta and pesto.
CityGate Grille offers an abundant cellar of domestic and imported red and white wines, and there’s a helpful section of the menu labeled “Cellars Choice” to help you pick the right wine for the occasion. As an added bonus, many of these well-known vinos can be purchased for under $100.
