No Kid’s Menu
Why Should I Go? Chef Pete Karapanagiotis is the younger brother of John Karapanagiotis, owner of George’s Place just down the street (hence “YB,” which is short for younger brother). But Pete has made his own mark within the culinary world. At just twenty-two years old, he held the title of Executive Chef at Philadelphia’s highly-acclaimed Brasserie Perrier Cafe. His resume also includes such highly-regarded restaurants as Buddakan, Le Bec Fin and Prive. At twenty-seven, he’s already made appearances on the Food Network’s Chopped; Diners Drive-Ins and Dives; and Good Morning, Philadelphia.
In this charming, beach-front eatery, Pete offers modern American fare with a delightful twist. His menus — breakfast, lunch AND dinner — are delicious and affordable. (The highest-priced entree is only $18.95), which means you can feel good about coming often — whether for a quick break from the beach, or an intimate night out.
We recommend the swordfish tacos with a side of duck fat fries. (though you can’t really go wrong), while taking in one of the spectacular sunsets across the street, of course. Come with a group of friends or a significant other; the dimly-lit space makes for a romantic night out. There’s a reason The New York Times listed the YB as one of their must-try places to go if you’re only in Cape May for a short time.
Insider Tip: Don’t forget to check out the bathroom… we won’t tell you why! And remember, cash only, and BYOB.
“XL” French Toast
Sourdough French toast crusted in Rice Krispies and topped with house-made vanilla whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
Eggs scrambled with chorizo sausage, jalapeno, onions, tomatoes and Swiss cheese, served with a Sriracha sauce.
9oz house-made burger topped with sweet bacon onions, Swiss cheese on a brioche bun, and served with duck fat French fries.
Mac & Cheese “Poppers”
House-made mac & cheese made with jalapenos. Fried, then baked with stewed tomatoes.
This is what was cooked at George’s Place on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives (DDD). The turkey is cooked for 12 hours in duck fat, served with chorizo cornbread stuffing and fresh cranberry jam. Amazing!
