As the sign welcoming visitors to its city limits reads, the community of South Bend is, “Building a 21st Century city.”
Once a powerhouse of industry, the Indiana city has reinvented its economy over the last decade, on the backs of new and inventive businesses focused on services, technology, entertainment and, of course, great dining.
Located in the heart of downtown inside one of the district’s oldest buildings, LaSalle Grill has been a constant during this period of renaissance for the 150-year-old city.
Like the city’s mantra, LaSalle Grill has become an icon for innovation and a destination for people with all sizes of pocketbooks.
First opening its doors at 115 W. Colfax Ave., in 1991, the upscale American bistro has become a perennial destination for residents and tourists alike, winning 18 consecutive AAA Motor Club Four Diamond Awards, more than any restaurant in the state. With the temporary closing of the 40-year old Carriage House earlier this year, LaSalle Grill became the city’s oldest fine dining restaurant, according to owner and founder Mark McDonnell.
