This afternoon, my brother and I decided to make the most of King of Prussia Restaurant Week and grab some lunch on his day off of work. I'd been to the new KOP Town Center and had spotted City Works and it looked like a really fun location. It was an excellent decision, and here's why:
We arrived to the restaurant around 2:30PM and had missed most of the lunch rush (which worked for me!). This was my first visit to City Works, and so I wasn't very familiar with the atmosphere or the menu, but I was really impressed with both.
Upon walking in, I felt like I'd been transported to a sort of urban mountain lodge with wood and metal/modern details. Though my brother ordered from the main menu (he got the pretzel bites and a burger - loved both), I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu (aside from the pretzel bites, everything on here is exclusive for this week and isn't offered on the main menu... take advantage now!).
My selections were the Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls, and the Short Rib Tacos.
First of all, I loved the presentation of the food, especially the Cheesesteak Eggrolls. My brother also commented on how unlike a lot of other restaurant's take on Cheesesteak Eggrolls, these actually mimicked a Philly Cheesesteak with all of the tasty toppings.
The short rib tacos were so juicy and full of flavor, not at all dry. And the fries. Let me tell you about the fries. SO. GOOD.
We were full, but decided to order dessert anyway (naturally) and went with the Peanut Butter Snickers Pie after our server recommended it. It was very smooth and rich and all of the things that you hope something called Peanut Butter Snickers Pie would be. Note: You can definitely share this between two people.
Last but not least, let's talk about the beer list. I'm not a beer snob, but I do love trying new things when I get the chance and City Works absolutely offered a unique variety. I ordered the Austin Eastciders Pineapple Cider (golden ripe pineapples have been married into a dry cider made of American dessert and European bittersweet apples) and my brother ordered the New Belgium Brewing Co. Fat Tire (toasty malt, gentle sweetness, flash of fresh hop bitterness; perfectly balanced malt and hops). We both loved our choices!
