In keeping it fresh, modern, and “Simply Delicious” we are excited for you to experience the passion that we bring to our food. We look forward to serving you.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing.

Mr. Lewis has experience launching and running a wide range of restaurants, including working with Intercontinental Hotels, Marriott Corporation, and the five-star, five-diamond Homestead Hotel.

48th Street Grille emerged as a result of a longtime dream of Mr. Lewis to expand the catering business and to launch his own, independently owned and operated restaurant. Taking advantage of the skills and experience he gained through nearly four decades of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry, Mr. Lewis now offers his guests a delectable and relaxing dining experience.
