2. Metro Grill III is set to open Friday in the new Encore Restaurant and Nightclub, the business in the former O’Brien’s Irish Pub space at 5205 E. Kellogg. Michael Gonzalez, who owns the Metro Grill in Towne East Square and recently sold his Metro Grill II in Andover, will serve some of his sandwiches there during the lunch and dinner hours.
3. U Grill, a restaurant that opened in late September in the former Linkhaus spot at 7817 E. 37th St. North, closed several weeks ago. The restaurant was owned by Will Clark and included a Mongolian grill plus build-your-own Philly cheese steak sandwiches, burgers, brats and hot dogs.
