Chef Mario Flores
I was first introduced to City Café through some great friends years ago. Easy access off the toll way at Lover’s Lane in University Park, City Café has a comfortable bistro dining room with excellent New American-Californian cuisine. With its corresponding City Café To-Go space next-door, it caters to all, literally. Personally, it’s tough to say no to the Thai Fried Calamari and Lobster Ravioli.
So, Let’s Tango…
You’re stranded on a desert island, and only have one food to live on. What would it be?
Mario: One food, one type of food? I’d probably say nuts. That’s my snack.
Scotty is ready to beam you to the best restaurant city on Earth. Where are you going?
Mario: I would go to City Café on Lovers Lane.
You suddenly have an unexpected break in your day. What are you doing?
Mario: Going fishing.
You’re in the hotel bar, you turn and the most amazing person is next to you and wants to chat. Who is it?
Mario: I would probably talk to Mark Cuban. He is a very successful guy who has always been making a lot of money. He is smart. He is a brilliant guy.
People don’t know good until they have tried this at your restaurant? What is it?
Mario: Our Cathy’s Healthiest Chopped Vegetable Salad. We named it just a chopped salad, but a client loved it so much we named it after her. So its Cathy’s Chopped Salad. Its something they must try at the restaurant every time they come in. It’s all vegetables with an amazing lemon oregano dressing on it.

So, go and try Chef Mario’s work first hand, enjoy an awesome meal and experience in City Café’s dining room. If you like it and shout about it enough, he might just name it after you. TangoTab recommends that CEO Mom grab a great meal for the family from City Café To Go, or couples can grab some friends and share some free sides with their meal. Life’s better with great sides.
