You’ve probably heard of City of ironbecause it has made a name for itself as one of the best concert halls in town, but did you know Iron City Grill has a menu that challenges the grandeur of the music played next door. Fill up on delicious new dishes, from braised beef with roasted Brussels sprouts to po-boys with fried oysters. Here’s your rundown of all the tasty dishes we’ve tried.
Of the sea
Are you really from the South if you haven’t had a good po-boy? This Louisiana classic graces the Iron City menu just in time for the holidays. Bite into crispy fried oysters on a grilled and buttered baguette. With a fresh bed of arugula and red onion to cut through the richness, this could be the perfect sandwich.
Seared Grouper & Oatmeal
If you are not a fan of fish because of that fishy taste, grouper is the dish for you. City of iron Grill Grouper is seared to perfection on creamy cheese grits. Next to it, you’ll find roasted mini rainbow carrots and puffed cherry tomatoes.
Of the earth
Carnitas Alabama Bowl
Order the Alabama Carnitas Bowl in Iron City and you’ll be greeted with a colorful bowl filled with yellow rice, braised turnip greens, cherry tomatoes, simmered pork, and pickled red onions. This hearty bowl is a fun southern twist on traditional carnitas and is as delicious as it is beautiful.
Southern fried chicken
Fried chicken is a classic, but this dish is beyond the ordinary in both presentation and taste. The juicy chicken breast is crispy fried and served with mashed red potatoes so creamy they rank among the best mashed potatoes I’ve ever tasted. Pair it with collard greens and grilled onion sauce, and you’re ready to go.
Braised Beef Cheek
Treat yourself to this dish worthy of a five-star restaurant. This delicious braised beef cheek is so tender you won’t even need a knife. Accompanied by a creamy mash of parsnips and roasted Brussels sprouts, this dish is an incredible complement of flavors and textures.
A sweet finish
Iron City Grill’s The menu offers a rotating weekly menu of tasty desserts to choose from. We tried their apple pie and chocolate peanut butter cookie sundae, and let me tell you, it was to die for.
Apple pie is a great choice for those looking for something less sweet. The custard base brings a strong vanilla flavor and a subtle sweetness. On top you’ll find a half-roasted apple that’s burnt for a crunch.
PB Cookie Ice Cream
Prepare to indulge yourself with a peanut butter cookie sundae. This monster sundae has a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, and peanut brittle.
