A new restaurant called City Grill opened Nov. 15 at 1319 Cornwall Ave. The restaurant serves a variety of Western food including burgers, pasta, sandwiches, wraps, steaks, fish and chicken for lunch and dinner.
City Grill focuses on homemade cuisine at affordable prices. Owner Frank Wang, who has been a cook for more than 20 years, makes his own soup, dressing, sauce and dip.
Sue Lu, who owns the business with her husband, said she enjoys restaurant work. She said they wanted to open the restaurant in Bellingham because it’s a lovely city and the people are nice.
“Frank loves cooking and I had a hard time finding a job, so we said ‘Let’s do it,’” Lu said.
Lunch specials are $7.25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. Dinner specials are $8.25 from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. City Grill accepts dine-in orders as well as carry-out orders.
Since opening Lu said she has received a lot of good feedback. One customer favorite so far is the vegetable sandwich which includes cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, bell peppers, sprouts, avocado, red onion and optional lightly-seasoned tofu. The sandwich is featured in the lunch special section of the menu.
Lu said opening a business during the holiday season is hard, but she has received a lot of encouraging comments and she is optimistic for the future.
City Grill is open from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Saturday. For more information call 360-734-3462.
