There's a new eatery in the area with an owner/chef that we've already come to know and respect. Cotton Row and Commerce Kitchen on the Courthouse Square in downtown Huntsville and Pane e Vino at the Huntsville Museum of Art have allowed us to taste the great dishes conceived and produced by Chef James Boyce. We, in turn, have given him our wholehearted approval and support. His latest restaurant opened on May 24, 2021.
When Grille 29, located in The Village of Providence in Madison, closed in May of 2020, I was really sorry. I had dined there on a number of occasions and always enjoyed it. When I learned that Boyce had bought the space and was putting his own signature on it, I was eager to try it.
Grille on Main has the same layout and footprint as Grille 29 with its large indoor dining space, bar area, and plenty of outdoor tables, but much has been changed. New light fixtures, fresh artworks on the walls, new chairs, refinished tables, wood flooring replacing the carpet, and a dramatic fire table now appears where the large aquarium once was.
The menu has been completely revamped. I met a friend for lunch last week. She ordered the the Garlic Rubbed Rosemary Chicken Breast. I chose the Grilled Trout, and we shared the Pineapple Upside Down Carrot Cake for dessert. We enjoyed our lunch very much and look forward to returning to try more items on the menu.
The dinner menu also sounds amazing, and the dessert choices are extremely tempting. I noticed Chef Boyce's famous Peanut Butter and Jelly in Phyllo on the list and will definitely try it when I go back.
I'm sure the folks on the Madison, Athens, Hartselle side of Huntsville will be happy to have this new dining location, and I predict Grille on Main will be another hit for Chef Boyce and his team.
P.S. They do take reservations.
