Almost two years to the day after a fire at the Chelsea Shopping Center closed the Chelsea Grill, owner Gina Pantely reopened the renovated restaurant in May. "I've brightened it up, and it's roomier and I think more comfortable," says Pantely, who also owns the Broken Egg in Ann Arbor.
Pantely says everything about the restaurant is new--the decor, the staff, and the menu. She's kept some customer favorites from the grill's former incarnation, such as the spaghetti and meatballs, but says she and chef Greg LaBute plan to introduce new items frequently. Selections include appetizers, sandwiches, salads, steaks, seafood, and pastas.
