Cameron Mitchell Restaurants is coming to Dublin in a big way. The newest Cap City Diner opened this summer in the Bridge Park development on the east side of the Scioto River at the corner of Riverside Drive and Dublin-Granville Road. Next year, the Avenue Steak Tavern will open a second location in old Dublin.
Cap City Dublin diners will enjoy a new, upscale look, with lots of wood, upholstered booths and the jukebox. The bar at the center of the restaurant always appears busy. Other venues there include a nice patio and a private room.
We sampled some old favorites and a few new dishes during two recent lunch visits.
We really enjoyed the strawberry-basil lemonade and the peach (Arnold) Palmer ($3.49 for a nice-size carafe); and the soft rolls.
I could not resist the signature meat loaf ($13.49 lunch/$17.79 dinner); and my wife had the Philly cheesesteak with horseradish sauce ($12.49) with a side of creamy coleslaw.
On the second visit, my friend had the apple spinach salad with steak and black bean chili. I had the roasted Creole tomato soup with the lemon Caesar salad and our guest had the stuffed pepper soup with a wedge salad; the soup and salad duo was only $10.99. Such a deal!
Then, Cameron Mitchell Corporate Chef Brian Hinshaw appeared with a yummy slice of lemon meringue pie, a new menu item.
Other signature menu items include the blue cheese potato chips and the huge desserts, such as the Three-layer “Seriously Big Chocolate Cake,”24K Carrot Cake,” and the milk shakes, malts and floats.
Cap City Fine Diner & Bar Dublin offers a familiar, comforting menu at fair prices in an upscale new setting. Check it out.
