Evolutionarily, humans weren’t meant to stay up past sunset. In a largely agrarian society, people’s schedules revolved around sunlight – the workable hours. With the advent of electricity, people began staying up later and later, culminating in one single event: you, last night, staying up to finish your pset. It’s late and you’re hungry. If only there was somewhere to go!
But there is! It’s called Quad Grille, and it has everything your tired and sleep deprived heart could want! Their best dish by far are the mozzarella sticks, which taste like pieces of fried heaven. A good mozzarella stick is hard to do – you have to have the perfect temperature for the cheese and the ideal crispiness on the outside – so hats off to Quad Grille for doing it well.
My blockmates love the chicken fingers, claiming that they may even be better than the HUDS version (how could that be?). The Grille is even nice enough to provide you with everything from barbeque sauce to ketchup – the selection of sauces is almost as varied as the food itself. And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the curly fries. I don’t know if there’s much more to say about them, except that you need them in your life.
And it takes board plus! In my honest (and perhaps unsolicited) opinion, this is the best way to spend that free cash. That’s right, I said it. It’s even better than Greenhouse. So next time you find yourself in the Quad, sad, tired, hungry, or just bored, make your way to the Quad Grille. You will leave with more mozzarella sticks you had when you entered, so it’s obviously a win.
