The Rainmaker Group already operated Brimstone Woodfire Grill in Pembroke Pines and Piñon Grill in Boca Raton, and in 2012 opened Grille 401 on Las Olas Boulevard in the space where Rare steakhouse and before it, Bova Prime, used to live. Decor is contemporary and comfortable, with warm blue and slate walls, nicely textured wood floors and tabletops, and silky striped oversized booths with matching curtains. The fare is upscale comfort food such as the eight ounce Prime Burger served on a challah bun or herb roasted Bell and Evans "all-natural" chicken topped with cilantro key lime sauce and a side of shoestring fries. Seafood options include sushi, to cedar plank salmon and pecan crusted trout. A full bar with a large array of specialty cocktails is available. The restaurant draws the downtown corporate crowd, but unfortunately, its marketing claim that food is locally sourced could not be confirmed by managers when they were pressed for details.
