I Nonni is Italian for "the grandfathers," but this restaurant doesn't give you nickels for ice cream or regale you with stories of dating "before the Internet." Instead, it serves Roman-inspired cuisine that changes seasonally and is made from scratch by the restaurant's acclaimed chefs—even the meat butchering and ham curing is done in-house, though thankfully not tableside. A recent menu, for example, offered antipasti such as calamari dashed with Sicilian sea salt ($12) and crudo ($9), an Italian variation on the Japanese delicacy sashimi. First courses, or primi piatti, included gnocchetti—a potato gnocchi adorned with bacon-like pancetta ham, pecorino cheese made from ewe's milk, and a forest-mushroom ragu sauce—and risotto made with braised beef cheeks and underscored by saffron and balsamic vinegar. The secondi piatti selection featured the traditional dish osso buco ($29), a braised veal shank seasoned with gremolata and supplemented with risotto, and pan-seared sea scallops ($27) awash in a sweet vermouth wine accompanied by arugula and forest mushrooms.

For the last two decades, the chefs at The Grandview Grill have been adding their own touch to classic diner fare. They’ve spiced up breakfast staples to mimic the flavors of other popular dishes, creating options such as pineapple-upside-down-cake pancakes, topped with a dollop of vanilla crème and cinnamon butter, and the caprese benedict piled with tomato and fresh mozzarella and smothered in a basil-pesto hollandaise. As the clock moves toward the lunch hour, chefs begin creating sandwiches with the same level of inventiveness, filling grilled-cheese sandwiches with three styles of cheese and topping veggie burgers with garden ingredients. Like any good diner, The Grandview Grill crowns meals with shakes, malts, and ice-cream sundaes blended with candy, fruit, and cookies. When it comes to environmental responsibility, however, the diner shuns tradition: it only serves coffee that’s organic, fair trade, and flown directly from Brazil, and it strives to recycle as many of its materials as possible.
