About Us


“Chef/owner Preston Phillips draws inspiration from his Alabama roots to add a dash of Dixie to a smart board of good-time bar fare balanced with more sophisticated offerings suitable for the Cherry Creek North setting.”

Food. Friends. & Fun! grindkitchen

The Cherry Creek garden-level spot has been transformed into a cozy, low-slung bar and dining room decorated with vintage photos and prints, rustic light fixtures made from Mason jars and bright pickled vegetables in quart-sized containers. Although the space is below street level, windows on the south and west walls let in a surprising amount of sunlight, giving a warm glow to reclaimed barnwood and weathered tin siding. The space also includes patio tables to enjoy outside dining.


Our wonderful customers are the reason we’re in business. Here are some of the great things they’ve said about us.

We’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re a satisfied customer, too!

  • Grind is unique and not something that you would expect to find in Cherry Creek North. It’s more something that you would have to go to RINO of the Highlands for. Farm to table, organic, grass fed with a southern style, that is new to me. Great food and friendly helpful service. We enjoyed everything we had and will definitely go back!

  •  We accidentally stumbled across this eatery on way down to Machete. We stopped because it looked beautiful and had a deck I’d hoped to get to sit at when it warmed up. It was their “soft opening” they explained. I wasn’t sure what to expect but I don’t think the food or service can get any better. The fried Brussels are rich with everything you ever wanted brussel sprouts to have, pork, tang and crispness. The beet salad is how everyone should be allowed to eat beets, fresh and tasty WITH cheese. We shared the pork shoulder dinner and its tender flavor on top of the amazing root mash made me want more mash! Truly a decadent meal. We opted for the Pecan Swiss Roll for dessert, it is like the best banana bread but covered with an almost too sweet layer of icing. The buttermilk ice cream tastes like cheesecake, this dish is an explosion of different sweet flavors. I will tell you throughout the whole meal, you will taste the quality in every ingredient. The owners, the artistic chefs and bartenders are not skimping on ingredients, they are locally driven recipes and you will have a happy belly. Please go check them out, and if it’s warm enough, definitely enjoy the patio! Oh, and if you’re gonna have dessert, by the looks of the milk and cookies, you can’t go wrong.
