The former Yong’s Asian Fusion in Fulshear has moved in a new direction and has recently re-opened as the Fulshear City Grill. Opting for a soft opening as opposed to a grand opening, the Fulshear City Grill has been open for a couple of weeks, and they have had a promising stream of customers, eager to learn what the new menu has to offer.
In terms of the layout, City Grill has remained the same, but the management is aiming to provide a country and western style them, to go along with a completely new menu. Instead of stir fry and noodles, the restaurant will be serving up a wide selection of burgers, steaks, etouffe and other traditional southern comfort foods.
“Chef C has been hired as the new Head Chef. ‘We are aiming for a low key, fun and family oriented environment” he explains. “We will be offering regular evening specials as we begin to get established and adjust to the new menu. We are not trying to be fancy, we have listened to the customers and we know that good burgers, fries and steaks are going to be the way to go. Everyone is welcome and we try to experiment with different combinations and presentation. I know that people in the local area have an interest in unique foods.’”
With over 30 years in the restaurant and food industry, Chef C favors French, Italian and Cajun Creole as his preferred cooking styles and main influences. He has worked in family restaurants and 4 star hotels throughout the U.S. over the course of his career, cooking at establishments in New Orleans, Las Vegas and Boston.
“‘It is going to be interesting to watch how the restaurant develops as we go through the transition phase” says Chef C. “We are still working on the new menu and we are learning to work together as a new team. It has been great to see customers come through the doors already, we are looking forward to making this into a great place for people to come and eat.’ ”
