Main Streets are often the most historic parts of town, their storefronts changing over the years as the generations visiting them evolve. And Main Street Grill is no different. Since first opening as a general store in 1877, it has also served as an opera house, a bank, an auto-supply shop, and a TV and radio store.
Traits of these past lives are still visible throughout the restaurant; for example, a private dining room is housed in an old bank vault, and on weekends, musicians here fill the space with soothing music, just as the bankers used to jam by shaking bags of coins.
Main Street's menu is equally nostalgic, though its classic, elegant dishes are updated with contemporary ingredients and Texas flair. Rainbow trout is encrusted with crab and sunflower seeds, the southwestern pork tenderloin is rubbed in chili, and duck breast is smoked over green-tea leaves and then plated in blackberry-wasabi sauce. The wine list integrates reds, whites, and sparkling varietals from around the world, and various digestifs pair perfectly with dessert.
