Ned Ludd co-founder Ben Meyer, who left his partnership with the wood-fired spot in September, welcomes you to Grain & Gristle — his pub-style restaurant and collaboration with Upright Brewing and Alex Ganum.
The sample menu's had folks salivating since September (pork rinds! pretzels! mussel frites!), and now finally, the big reveal. According to our photographer extraordinarie Allison Jones, G&G's warm wooden interior is like "being hugged by a forest" — complete with exposed-wood-edge bar by Upright fave Brendan Alvistur and an employee-made "painting" actually constructed of hand-dyed and hand-stitched silk. Grain & Gristle opens today.
