R. Thomas Deluxe Grill Restaurant Review: R. Thomas Deluxe Grill offers a lengthy menu designed to satisfy a wide range of dietary concerns, from vegetarian to vegan to gluten-free, including plain old hunger. There's no place better for recovering from a raucous night on the town having indulged in too much adult beverage. Organically grown flowers and plants, personally tended to by owner Richard Thomas, edge the “dining room,” which is a climate-controlled patio. Folk art whirligigs twirl and twist, adding an unexpected earthiness to this sophisticated neighborhood. Come for the burgers (made with beef from grass-fed cattle raised without hormones and antibiotics), the stuffed baked potatoes, the omelets and the raw apple "pie," featuring chopped Granny Smith apples enfolded into a wheat-free mixture with dates and raisins and sweetened with brown rice syrup. There are a few wines of little note and beers. Smoothies are more popular. The restaurant only closes one day a month (usually a Monday) from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. for maintenance.
