Sundays at the Grand Cafe with Cornbread Harris and Sicilian Pizza

Cornbread Harris
If you haven’t been to the Grand Cafe yet for their Sunday suppers, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Piano legend Cornbread Harris, is still going strong at 89. Backed by sax and standup bass, they plays a repertoire of jazz classics. No cover.

And chef Andrew Kraft supplements the small plate menu of shareable dishes with a rotating selection of Sicilian-style deep-dish pizzas. $10 for a quarter-pan, $18 for a half, $27 for a full pan, big enough to feed four. But the small plate menu offers lots of good choices – highlights of recent visits have included a juicy burger, served on a foccacio bun with fries ($13); mussels in red curry ($11), and spaghetti with clams ($13).

Open for dinner on Sundays from 5 to 9 p.m. Cornbread Harris plays from 6:30 to 8:30.
