ABOUT THE GRILL ON BROADWAY
For decades, The Grill on Broadway (and in its former incarnation The Broadway Grill) have been a focal point for Seattle's gay community and culture. In spite of its longstanding relationship with Seattle's gay community, Matthew Walsh is the first gay owner of the restaurant in its decades-long existence. In 2010, Matthew Walsh purchased the restaurant, and re-named it The Grill on Broadway, and changed the food and drink menu to reflect a focus on artisanal and craft cocktails and locally sourced foods.
