After a year long run as Crisp, the falafel spot at 18th and Ludlow is rebranding itself as Grillicious. And that’s not the only change as the fast-serve spot is now offering some non-vegetarian options.
The new menu offers flatbread sandwiches (gone is the orignal pita), salads, hummus bowls and an angus burger.
The new Grillicious is under the same ownership and opens to the public tomorrow, Tuesday, November 20th.
