For three decades, the Granfalloon has been known for many things: late-night gathering place for service-industry workers, rowdy destination for the sports-hungry and satellite-impaired, after-work happy-hour mecca. But it was never known for its food — until owner Tim Caniglia, sensing increased competition from other Plaza saloons, decided to up his game and hire a real chef. Michael Clay Colling arrived earlier this year, and if you haven't eaten at the Granfalloon in a while (ever?), prepare to be surprised. The quality and creativity of Colling's menu have propelled the place to a new level. The newest version of his menu is coming soon and promises four steaks, Kobe sliders, new pastas and more. Even better, most of that food can be ordered late into the evening.
