Long-time area sommelier and friend Mark Sontz (Omri & Boni) always wanted to open a casual bar/restaurant featuring what Mark calls ‘street food.’ I would call their menu ‘comfort food’ and apply the label of a neighborhood bar and grill.
The Grill on Main occupies the former Old Town space occupied by Devane’s Restaurant and we believe it is a big improvement. A variety of burgers, dogs and sandwiches dominate the menu along with salads and featured ‘main’ plates.
My husband, Bill, has enjoyed “The Gobbler” turkey burger with house fries on more than one occasion. Although I’m not really a burger kind of girl, I’ve surprised Bill on more than one occasion by polishing off their MacDaddy Burger which is topped with house-made – what else – Mac & Cheese.
The Grill features a variety of interesting beers and a cocktail menu. Mark Sontz’ wine knowledge shows in his really interesting wine list that offers a number of great values. Most bottles are priced below $35 and a variety of wines by the glass are available from $6 to $8.
The Grill has a nice little patio out front and offers a Kids’ Menu and Happy Hour deals on drinks and small bites. Try the bread pudding for desert! The Grill on Main is located in Old Town La Quinta, right underneath The Hogs Breath Inn at 78-065 Main Street, La Quinta (760) 777-7773
