264 the Grill
Embedded into 264 The Grill's worn stone façade over a blue-and-white awning is a clock that reports the hour that meals begin. However, the weight of time vanishes once you're through the door, thanks to the posh interior full of timeless paraphernalia, classic entertainment such as live jazz, and a time-tested menu of upscale eats. Here, the chefs whip up a menu of surf 'n' turf classics, filling sizzling pans with new york strip steaks and fillets of their signature "steak"—a seared lobster cake drizzled with béarnaise sauce. They prepare freshly caught fish in four different fashions: siciliano, caribbean, baked and stuffed, or pineapple plank. As a side, Susan Merritt and her jazz trio fill hungry ears with smooth tunes on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, inspiring diners to get up and cut a rug or carve a baked potato into a pan flute.
