Open today: Jersey’s Grill and Bar

A peek inside Jerseys Grill and Bar on its VIP night.

Today is the first official day in business for Jersey’s Grill and Bar, the business taking over the space at 3213 N. Toben Road (near K-96 and Webb) formerly occupied by Johnny Carino’s.

Jersey’s is a sports bar full of televisions, projection screens and video games. The menu, which you can see here, features sports bar classics such as nachos, pizzas, wings, burgers and steaks.

Food is served from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, and the bar stays open until 2 a.m.

I inspected a bunch of pictures on the restaurant’s website, and it appears to have been nicely remodeled, though I can still recognize all the Carino’s landmarks. Jersey’s sits right by the similarly themed Palmers Grill, which opened earlier this year in the old Fritz Co. Grille space.

For more information about Jersey’s, call 316-636-5000 or visit the restaurant’s website.

Palmers Grill will open Monday

The long-empty building that previously (and very briefly) housed Fritz Co. Grille at 3421 N. Toben has a new tenant.

Palmers Grill, owned by former Old Chicago manager Trey Downer, is set to open on Monday.

It’ll be open from 11 a.m. to midnight Sundays through Thursdays and from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays and will serve burgers, steaks, pastas, sandwiches and standard bar foods such as buffalo wings, nachos and spinach and artichoke dip. You can see a full menu here.

The menu item that caught my eye: The Juicy Lucy, a takeoff on a famous method of burger preparation which involves stuffing the patty full of cheese before cooking.
