When customers began to favor casual, quick plates to fine, extended dining, Highland Park’s Bluegrass restaurant gave them what they wanted.

The restaurant opened in 2004 by serving large portions to their customers, who appreciated bringing home leftovers. But now, owner Jim Lederer’s motto has changed: “We’re keeping it fun and casual.”

“Since we’ve been here, the world has changed tremendously and dining habits have also changed,” Lederer said regarding his restaurant at 1636 Old Deerfield Road, Highland Park.
