Tickle Tongue Tuna Napoleon-City Grill, Montgomery, Alabama #5

Tuna Napoleon-City Grill in Montgomery #5 or #95 on the Countdown.

*100 Dishes to eat in Alabama before you die is a compilation of food to chow down on Bama style. Thanks to Tourism Alabama, www.alabama.travel my Alabama bucket list just became a little easier. I am going to have some fun while making my way like Ms. Pacman, in yet another state that I call home. Download the alphabetical brochure that begins in Abbertville and ends in York. From the little old diner to the white cloth joint, it is an opportunity to explore and experience pride in the food from restaurateurs who are dedicated to local food with some Alabama style.

This week marks the 50th anniversary of the 50 mile march from Selma to Montgomery. I do not have a profound connection to my experiences on the “Alabama 100” list.  On this Tasty Tuesday, I highlight a Montgomery dish in honor of this historically significant event.

. While not a food critic, I I am Meg, I  know what turns my crank and this dish rocked my world.   I have been on a good streak of great food in Alabama.   Thus far, I would put this dish on the top of my list.  Well, I might have to start categories of favorites. That pecan and peach pie in Clanton were also on top of my list.

Low lighting, modern, clean – serious food!

The Tuna Napoleon is described as “diced sushi-grade tuna with avocado and miso vinaigrette –is enough to haunt any sushi lovers dream for days.”    I just don’t know how to best describe this dish;  A near religious experience, made my palette juice, haunting?  Why yes, all of those things.  Dedication to local food done right.

City Grill is described as $$$$ American, Steakhouse. It is one of Montgomery’s fine dining restaurants. It is modern, clean with professional service. The food menu is A la carte. I was able to have a fine dining experience, and check off a dish on my Alabama 100 list.

Here are some other dishes that I tried and I would shove them in my face again.
