If you live in Shadyside – and you heard the helicopters buzzing overhead this morning – then bear with us as we share some sad news: Harris Grill suffered a fire this morning.
“The first floor is burned out,” says Alex Fruzynski, a co-owner for some 15 years here at the Harris Grill in Shadyside. Appears second, third floors have less damage, he says.

We aren’t entirely sure of the extent or cause of the fire, but this is understandably a difficult moment for the team at Harris Grill.

And now, for some good news: Millie’s Ice Cream (Harris Grill’s neighbors at both their Shadyside AND Downtown locations) sprung into action this morning.
Living by the ‘be a good neighbor’ mantra, Millie’s is asking their customers to show support by dining out at one of Harris Grill’s other two locations: Harris Grill Downtown or Shiloh Grill in Mount Washington.
Bring your receipt from either location and Millie’s will hook you up with a free scoop of ice cream.
Neighborly love, voila!
