The Grill at Hacienda del Sol

The Weekly recently sent one of its intrepid reporters to The Grill to research this blurb. He was promptly seated at the bar rather than in the restaurant--which was upsetting, because he'd actually bathed and put on a clean shirt. Turns out it wasn't a personal hygiene issue after all: They were expanding and remodeling the place at the time. The new digs are open now, and thankfully, the immaculate service and dreamy food is all still there. We anticipate that The Grill will continue to be the place to take that someone special. And we recommend the duck.
