The Majestic Grille Restaurant Review: Beginning in 1913, the Majestic No. 1 showed silent films for three decades. Today, the historic building houses an upscale restaurant, but owners Deni and Patrick Reilly have kept the film legacy alive. They retained the Majestic name and left the projection area intact. They even occasionally screen classic movies for patrons. Food tends toward dressed-up versions of comfort classics. There’s lemon grilled chicken, a bacon-blue cheese burger, and cheese ravioli with goat cheese, spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Steaks are aged 21 days and served with butter and garlic mashed potatoes or fries. Majestic’s dessert shots --- tiny servings of Key lime pie, tiramisu and carrot cake, served in shot glasses --- are locally famous. The wine list is decent with a good number of wines offered by the glass. The cocktail menu is heavy on vintage selections dating back to the early 1900s. Located a block away from the historic Orpheum Theatre, where touring Broadway shows are always playing, The Majestic offers a special pre-theater menu for show-goers.
