Bright lights, Deep Citi

Monica offers great food and cat food with urban flair

And when we went back for dinner, the food was excellent. A cup of cream-of-tomato soup was tart but full-flavored; the Field of Dreams--an "eggplant steak" sandwich--came on crisp-edged, warm focaccia, flecked with rosemary and mellowed with mozzarella. And desserts--Italian cream cake and chocolate torte from CD Bakery in Deep Ellum--were heavy-duty indulgence. As we sat at the counter sipping wine with Monica and watching the street scene outside, we thought that if we lived in Deep Ellum, we'd come here all the time. Which reminded us that we were out of cat food.
