Take charge of your sandwich with The Grid's build-your-own menu Boards and Buns option.  

Sometime this weekend, they’ll turn on the lights at The Grid (351 W. Hubbard St., 312-321-1351), the lounge and restaurant that subsumes its former upstairs neighbor, Baume & Brix.

Remodeling delivers a wood-burning pizza oven and spreads the Grid’s steel-and-wood look over both spaces, now joined by a common entrance. Dirk Flanigan (The Gage, Henri) serves as opening chef while searching for a location for his solo project. Flatbread pizzas, burgers, and a build-your-own sandwich category called Boards and Buns feature on the menu.

Steve Tavoso, one of the owners, says they are planning their soft opening for this Friday, September 27. Fire when ready, Gridley.
