LaSalle Grill – Fine Dining with an Artistic Flair
Elegant but never stuffy. Sleek but unpretentious. That’s the goal of this upscale restaurant in downtown South Bend, serving innovative entrées made from the freshest possible ingredients. The restaurant is housed in South Bend’s oldest commercial structure—built in 1868 as the St. Joseph Hotel—where original fine art created by local and nationally acclaimed artists adorns the walls.
The menu at LaSalle changes daily, so whether it’s your first or fifth visit you’ll be certain to enjoy a unique culinary experience. Savor starters like baked brie en croute or stuffed Portobello mushrooms. The entrées run a wide range, including perfectly cooked steaks, stuffed rainbow trout, and vegetarian selections like roasted beet risotto. True to its roots in Northern Indiana, LaSalle often features a game option. Wild boar tenderloin anyone? It’s a unique dining experience that’s perfect for a special occasion.
