Ken Stewart's Grille Restaurant Review: While it appears to be a typical, upscale steak-and-seafood restaurant at first glance, take a gander at the extensive menu to find that this east-of-the-city establishment offers far more than meat and potatoes. Of course, there are traditional steaks, including a juicy cowboy rib-eye. However, there's also a contemporary, richly flavored, bone-in veal chop served with goat cheese gratin and sautéed wild mushrooms, accompanied by port wine sauce. Seafood options include pan-seared scallops over butternut squash-sage risotto as well as broiled swordfish with daikon radish, cucumber and ponzu. Appetizers are also noteworthy and can easily be pieced together to make a meal. (We like the Angus sliders and fried pickles.) The wine list is extensive, if not a little overwhelming. Ask the servers for guidance when pairing courses. Desserts run to standard steakhouse favorites, so be sure to stick with anything chocolate.
