A heartfelt message from the owners Lynne & John

Regretfully and with a heavy heart, after 24 wonderful years (20 as Deleece - 4 as Grassroots) we will be closing our doors after Tuesday, December 31st. We have proudly served the Southport Neighborhood with pleasure, providing the best in food and drink. We have developed many friendships and loyal customers throughout our years, and we shall miss you all. We are forever grateful to everyone who has supported us, worked for us, and we hope to see you all one last time.

The restaurant is for sale and in the interim, though our in-house dining will cease, we will continue our catering operations.  We'll also be hosting pop-up chef events, as well as opening our doors for private parties and event space bookings.

From the owners of Deleece, Lynne & John bring you Grassroots Grill neighborhood eatery, where the food is simple, seasonal, and always made from scratch.    Grassroots is adjacent to the Mercury Theater Chicago ,  just four doors north of the Music Box Theatre and a short few blocks from Wrigley Field.   Our menu has something for everyone.   14-day dry aged steaks and burgers.  Organic, cage free chicken.  Sustainable salmon from North Atlantic farms.   We are family friendly with a kick'n healthy kids' meal.


We serve dinner every night and brunch Saturday and Sunday.

If Elle held her breath for the two block walk from our garden to Grassroots eatery these tomatoes would have a zero carbon footprint!
