Fuel Cafe was recommended by my friend Sarah. It is a unique place in Midtown, as the owner converted an old gas station into this (fairly) new restaurant. In a city where many do not see the value of preserving historic buildings, Fuel Cafe is a refreshing outlook.
I went to Fuel Cafe for dinner one night last week. It was pretty slow, so we were seated immediately. The inside is small, but quaint.
The food was delicious, to stay the least. Erin and I split a basket of fries, which came with three dipping sauces: sweet chili sauce, parmesan truffle sauce, and rouille. When then split the Bison Burger with brie cheese and grilled mushrooms.
The best part about this place is that everything is either organic or all natural, and it all tastes super fresh. It’s hard to explain how down home cooking can taste so delicate.
The best part about Fuel Cafe, though, are the little things. Our server greeted us at the door and opened it for us. When we said we were splitting the burger, they cut it in half and separated it on two plates for us. They took our leftovers and boxed them up themselves. These little touches on service made the place even better.
One other thing about Fuel Cafe…they have a food truck! Fuel Cafe was one of the local restaurants to make an appearance at the Food Truck Fare in Court Square. Can’t wait to see where their next appearance will be.
