Grill benefits somewhat from being the only
late-night eatery within walking distance of all the clubs and concerts that make you want some food. There's also the possibility that any post-show musicians in the house might be inspired to give an impromptu performance on the piano in the Red Room. That space has a late-night vibe even on Sunday afternoon, with its blood-red walls and random eBay décor. Inexplicably, a half-dozen stuffed wild animal heads adorn the walls along with a sizeable, pop-art portrait of Bob Dylan and a large, formerly outdoor sign over the bar promising "Lubrication." We recommend the scrambled eggs and home fries for a scrambled, after-hours effect away from home.
