Join me this Friday, October 14th, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., for another Follow Me on Friday! This week we’re returning to Morse Avenue to visit one of the many new restaurants which have opened on the street in the last few years–the Grill Inn, 1422 W. Morse.
Founded in 2008 by Rogers Park native, Eddie Ishoo, this local burger joint brings high quality meats, fresh vegetables and homemade sauces together in traditional and novel combinations. Eddie just recently added more than 25 domestic and imported beers to his all-encompassing menu.
With options that range from traditional American, to Greek and Spanish, the flavor pairings are exceptional. Grill Inn offers more than 12 specialty burgers. Notable among these is Grill Inn’s signature Murphy’s Melt, a burger topped with bacon, tomato and sautéed onions, nestled between two grilled cheese sandwiches.
“When I decided to open Grill Inn, I thought Roger’s Park was the perfect place,” says Eddie. “It’s near the beach, convenient to transit and I grew up here. Morse Avenue was also starting to turn around to become a place people want to be. ”
Eddie will be offering a sampling of his kebobs and fresh potatoes, and will provide a complimentary beer, wine or soft drink to everyone who stops by.
Check out the fun this Friday!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
