Empire City Gastropub is named accordingly for two reasons. First, a Gastropub is simply really good and creative bar food. Secondly, the name Empire City was chosen as a reflection of New York City's diversity in food and people. Empire City hopes to expose people to flavors that are from other areas of the country or world that they have never tried but will find delicious. There are a lot of really great restaurants and chefs in Jacksonville serving high quality southern food and ingredients. Empire City will provide this by putting their own touches on familiar American bar dishes such as chicken wings and burgers. They are a restaurant where you can come, watch the game, or dine with family and eat some really good and creative bar food.
