MANHATTAN — Limelight Marketplace is adding to its slate of dining options this weekend.
Limelight Grill, operated by Bruce Caulfield of Penn Station’s Tracks Raw Bar & Grill, served its first meals on Thursday inside the historic, arched building at 656 Sixth Avenue.
The long-delayed Limelight debut of fabled Brooklyn pizzeria Grimaldi’s is now slated for within the next month. Cana’s Wine Bar, also operated by Caulfield, will launch on Limelight’s second floor in about two weeks.
The cash-only Limelight Grill seats 40 and emphasizes the use of an open flame, fresh herbs and grilled seasonal vegetables, according to a spokesperson for Limelight.
Menu options include lobster roll sliders ($10), skirt steak pinwheels wrapped with bacon and provolone cheese ($6) and grilled portabella mushroom ($5.50).
Limelight Grill will operate from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is located in the Marketplace’s courtyard.
