Special Requests

We are happy to accommodate your special requests, such as adapting menu selections to meet your dietary requirements. Or, perhaps your heart is set on a dish that doesn’t appear on our current menu. Please contact us in advance with your request to arrange special orders and customized menu items.

Wine Dinners

Each month a themed wine dinner features a set menu of multiple courses. We choose specific wines to accompany each course to enhance the dining pleasure.

Degustation Dinners

The ultimate dining experience for your party. The chef will talk with you and your guests at the table to choose courses based on seasonal ingredients and the flavor preferences of everyone in your party. Delicious surprises await, as diners do not know in advance what will be served. The meal, designed by the chef and customized for your group, will showcase culinary artistry and highlight specific ingredients. We can pair wines with each course that the chef prepares.

Local Connections

At LaSalle Grill we’re proud to showcase local products and produce. It’s a simple way of showing our commitment to our neighbors and an even better way to offer you the freshest foods around. Many of our ingredients come from these suppliers:

Maple Leaf Farms
Leesburg, IN

Butternut Sustainable Farms

Schnabeltier Cheese

…had the pleasure of having dinner at the LaSalle … this week. My brother from Chicago and I were celebrating his recent retirement. As always, your crew made it special noting his name and the occasion on his menu (a great touch!) and your staff provided a very kind congratulatory card. It was a great experience as always. Food was terrific. . . and the service was its usual best.

A huge thank you to LaSalle, we are so thrilled you could cater our micro-wedding event. . . The food was just incredible and we were all talking about those french onion soup tartlets and the halibut all night! Their service was unparalleled, and we felt very taken care of.. . . “

“Had an awesome Valentines dinner with my wife. Spacing for COVID was good. . . .I had the filet mignon and my wife had the Faroe Island salmon, both were outstanding. The warm bourbon bread pudding was the best part. The wine selection was great also. . . . The entire staff made it a wonderful evening. This was our first indoor dining experience since last March.   Lasalle Grill is top shelf dining from the food to the staff. We will definitely be back.”

My son and daughter-in-law visited LaSalle Grill for their 5th wedding anniversary in September. She had just been diagnosed with cancer earlier in the summer and could not be around people. The folks at LaSalle Grill arranged to have a private dining area set up for them at no extra cost. Their meal was excellent as was the service. They appreciated the extra care taken by every staff member to make this a very memorable evening during a difficult health time for them.
