Examples

  • Grinders and Grinders West couldn't be more different, although there is, come to think of it, a slight overflow-valve quality to the food service at the western venue: Customers can order off the Grinders menu if they don't find anything they like on chef Steve Brucker's menu at Grinders West (and vice versa).
