NEW ESPN GRILLS TO SERVE A MEAN BERMAN BOUILLABAISSE?
Published October 15, 1997
ESPN announced the launch of ESPN Grill, a sports- themed restaurant, scheduled to open in Baltimore's Inner Harbor in '98 and in Chicago's River North neighborhood in '99. ESPN plans to extend the concept in other major cities following the opening of the initial two locations (ESPN). In Baltimore, Gary Gately writes that the ESPN Grill will open by the spring, and that visitors to the new restaurant will enter "a futuristic atrium immersed in everything sports." The Grill will also "double" as ESPN studio sets, although "neither Disney nor ESPN would say how often broadcasts might be beamed from Baltimore" (SUN, 10/15). Art Levitt, President of Disney Regional Entertainment, said that it plans to open three to five U.S. Grills a year and open outlets overseas (WALL STREET JOURNAL, 10/15).
