Our Culture

by Stephen Willson – Front of House Manager The culture at Gracie’s is one which I hope is not unique to our magical little restaurant. I would like to believe that there are countless other restaurants in the world with similar values and goals as ours. We are trying to change the world for the […]

Shortly after the 4th of July comes another holiday equally close to our hearts—France’s Bastille Day!

On the same day […]
