The Grille on Laurel Launches "Champagne Thursday" Promotion and Announces Partnership With New York Based Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors

LAKE FOREST, IL--(Marketwired - Jul 6, 2015) -  The Grille on Laurel, located at 181 E Laurel Avenue, has announced a partnership with Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, a legendary meat supplier to famous and iconic New York City eateries, along with the development of a new "Champagne Thursday" promotion that will offer guests a complimentary glass of champagne every Thursday beginning July 9.

"I have eaten steaks across the country, and found nothing that compares to the quality and tenderness of Pat LaFrieda's dry-aged steaks," said Marcus Lemonis, entrepreneur and host of CNBC's hit reality series, The Profit. "Our plan is to serve the best, freshest ingredients on the market, and we're excited to bring a taste of New York's finest meats to the restaurant, and challenge our customers to let us know if they've ever had a better steak. It's like New York 'meats' Chicago!"

Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors is a well-known meat provider in the northeast that opened its doors in 1922, and is currently in their third generation of being a family-run business. With meats served in over 500 restaurants, the company has been referenced as the "go to" butcher for some of the country's greatest chefs.

"Along with bringing in the best steaks we could source, we feel that after a long work week our customers deserve a complimentary glass of champagne to unwind and relax," continued Lemonis. "These improvements are just a sample of what's to come for The Grille, as we have quite a few new developments that we will be implementing in the coming months."

The "Champagne Thursday" promotion will offer guests a complimentary glass of champagne on Thursday nights from 5:00 p.m. to close with the purchase of an entrée. Customers can also purchase a variety of cocktails from the newly expanded bar lounge which features liquors from around the world.

Located in downtown Lake Forest, The Grille restaurant is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., and offers a Sunday Brunch from 10:30am to 2:30pm. The establishment has three sections, a front bar where guests can enjoy more lively conversation and television, a main dining room for formal dining, and a spacious outdoor patio complete with umbrellas and cushioned seating.

Marcus Lemonis recently became partners of this North Shore eatery and began initiating changes to the established restaurant and bar, aiming to bring a fun modern atmosphere to the restaurant along with a revamped menu and expanded bar lounge.
