I’m always asked if I know a good local place for brunch. I was excited when I was invited to Grille 401 to try their new brunch menu along with some of their other lunch/dinner menu items.
The Grille 401 brunch is available Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the menu will feature appetizers, traditional breakfast dishes, salads, sandwiches, desserts and a bottomless Mimosa and Bloody Mary Bar.
Once a month on Sundays, they will host their Bark n’ Brunch, a dog friendly brunch sponsored by Tito’s Vodka. Any sales from the bottomless Bloody Mary bar will be donated to different local animal shelters. Your pet will receive Tito’s branded goodies such as toys, bandanas and collars.
MORE GRILLE 401 Scoop
When you first walk in to Grille 401, especially during the evening, you’ll find fresh infused cocktails like their anti-oxidant rich Acai Mojito and live entertainment happening on their 800 square foot outdoor deck. The second level is the perfect setting for an event or party.
The Chef’s Table where our blogger diner was held, can host up to 12 people in a one-of-a-kind setting among the excitement of the woodfire grill kitchen. I could smell the dishes as they were being cooked and served by their Executive Chef.
