Grace goes grill

NOW Magazine - Hot Summer Guide - - FOOD & DRINK - SD

Ris­ing from the ashes of snooty Xa­cutti, Les­lie Gibson’s Grace (503 Col­lege, at Palmer­ston, 416-9448884) isn’t the sort of A-list hot spot where you ex­pect to find bar­gain­base­ment bar­be­cue in the up­stairs lounge. But ev­ery Thurs­day evening from 8 pm till last call, $10 gets you a plate­ful of chef Dustin Gal­lagher’s slow-braised pork shoul­der, char­grilled chicken and house-made sausage sided with roasted In­dospiced corn on the cob, coleslaw and potato salad. Not only that, you get a free se­lected do­mes­tic brewski, too! Need­less to say, the Thurs­day-night meal deal’s first come, first served, and, no, the 50-seat room doesn’t take reser­va­tions. Surely, at th­ese prices (there’s fancy $5 cock­tails, as well) they’re giv­ing the stuff away at cost.

“We’re just try­ing to get peo­ple in the door whether they have money or not,” says the ex-Susur sous of the of­fer that runs through the end of June. “If the re­sponse is good, I’m up for do­ing it all sum­mer.”

Get wal­let-friendly bar­be­cue Thurs­days at Grace.
