DescriptionThe Grid is a new upscale bar, lounge concept in the River North area of downtown Chicago. We are the brother bar to Baume & Brix, a modern playful fine dining restaurant located right above The Grid. Our partner chefs Benjamin Roche (previously with ING) and Thomas Elliott Bowman (previously with Moto) along with our Chef de Cuisine Nate Park (also previously with Moto) have taken the concepts of sweet and savory to create a playful menu experience at Baume & Brix, while creating a separate menu for us down at The Grid with new twists on bar favorites. The Grid is a beautiful venue, with 5 large, leather booths, ventless floating fireplaces, communal high tops, over 25 TVs, Funktion one sound system, high beamed ceilings, exposed brick and stainless steel ceilings give it a very masculine feel, or as we like to call it "Ron Burgandy's bar".
