Press Grill is another Short North original, the long, narrow diner a largely unchanged experience as redevelopment has engulfed its immediate surroundings. Crucially for the area, the Press Grill kitchen stays open until 1 AM, the kind of good food lifeline that can save a night (or a bar crawl). A full bar is available as well, of course, but the signature offerings here are all culinary, from the meatloaf sandwich to the Thursday night special, a full Thanksgiving dinner complete with turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. For those looking for a little bar crawl fuel, the loaded cottage fries are highly recommended.
