The Grind serves up a compact menu of burgers and other dishes cooked in unique coal-fired ovens. From the mouthwatering sweet and spicy burger, topper with combination of candied jalapeños and fried ratatouille, pungent roasted garlic aioli, and a heap of fresh watercress, to a peppercorn-crusted version, there is plenty to satisfy carnivores, although there are a few meat-free treats as well, including a hefty portobello burger, salads, roasted vegetables, and sweet potato fritters. Snug booths, sexy lighting, and a long, gleaming bar make it an inviting watering hole.
