The ownership and management team is excited to open in Storrs Center, and looks forward to welcoming the community to relax and enjoy unmatched food and beverages, and offering the perfect place to watch all the big games on television.

“We’re thrilled with Grille 86 coming to Storrs Center,” said Howard Kaufman, CEO and Principal of LeylandAlliance LLC, the master developer of Storrs Center. “There has been a huge demand for a larger place downtown that will stay open late and host informal gatherings of friends and families who want to watch a televised sporting event while enjoying some great food and drink. With the opening of Grille 86, that demand will be met.”
