It’s suppertime, your family is clamoring for dinner and nobody wants to cook.
Your teenagers are as finicky as ever. The younger one is clamoring for kalbi, and the older one wants a salad. Dad insists a burger would be fine but you know he secretly craves a steak. Tutu pats her tummy and says some soup would be very nice, thank you.
Head down to New Eagle Cafe, where the menu includes a family-friendly mixture of old-school favorites, luxurious treats and comfort foods from several continents.
At $22.50, Old-Fashioned Ribeye Steak is a giant 14-ounce Dad-pleaser. It’s grilled to order, topped with sauteed mushrooms and onions, and accompanied by hot veggies and white rice, mashed potatoes, french fries or brown rice.
Your young carnivore can order BBQ Short Ribs ($16.25), New Eagle’s kalbi. They’re accompanied by hot veggies, and though he could opt for rice or mashed potatoes, he’ll probably order New Eagle’s yummy crinkle fries.
With 10 distinctly different salads on the menu, and a half-dozen soups ranging from old-fashioned oxtail to mandoo udon, your older teen and her Tutu can find something satisfying here, too. Classic American diner offerings include spaghetti and meatballs, pork chops and prime rib. The menu also includes tempura combination plates, three kinds of katsu, and teishoku selections that range from miso butterfish to a whole Maine lobster with a side of sashimi.
You could even come back in the morning. New Eagle Cafe’s diverse breakfast menu includes everything from classic omelets and eggs Benedict to saba with miso and tsukemono. Mahi Mahi and Eggs ($12.95) is a wonderful way to start anybody’s day. The fish is egg-battered, floured, grilled and accompanied by two eggs, and your choice of hash brown, toast, white or brown rice.
