Earlier this week we told you about CITY Night at Border Grill — a special event at which Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken will indulge the nostalgia of their 1980s glory days by serving a menu inspired by their first restaurant, City Cafe and its subsequent incarnation, CITY. Today, the menu was announced, and as was the case in their former kitchens, it crosses continents.
