Pinon Grill: New Summer Menu (Plus Some Restaurant News)

Pinon Grill recently unveiled its new summer/fall menu during a media dinner at the Boca Raton restaurant. Greg Jones, director of operations for Rainmaker Restaurant Group (which owns Pinon Grill and Brimstone Woodfire Grill in Pembroke Pines), joined local food writers to discuss the menu changes as well as other happenings in the newly-formed restaurant group's holdings.

Jones indicated that Rainmaker's forthcoming steak-centric restaurant project on Las Olas -- in the space formerly occupied by Rare -- may not wind up with the name "The Grille," as originally planned. The concept for the American restaurant remains the same, but owners are considering a name with more specificity. The project involves a serious overhaul of the two-story space and should debut this fall.

The seasonal dishes will stick around on the menu depending on the level of popularity with guests, Jones said.

"We're always looking for the next 'new star'," he said.
