Grilly’s, one of Miller Avenue’s most longstanding businesses, turns 25 this year, and has given itself a multi-faceted makeover to celebrate the occasion.

Regular customers and neighbors of Grilly’s have likely noticed that the popular Mexican restaurant now has a new, modern patio. Owner and Mill Valley resident Jim Revoir says he’d been wanting to give the patio an overhaul for quite a while.

“We’re very much part of that streetscape and there is so much activity and shops and restaurants around us that I really thought it was important to give it an updated look, make it completely accessible and weather-ready,” he says, noting that local architect Barbara Chambers and landscape architect James Bradanini spearheaded the overhaul.

The modern, corrugated steel look of the patio also provided an opportunity to give Grilly’s logo and branding a refresh as well. To do so, Revoir turned to Mill Valley graphic designer James Van Kriedt, who has drawn rave reviews for his work for both Shoreline Coffee Shop in Tam Junction and Iron Lion Gym on Miller.

“We just felt that with the new patio, it was time to change the branding around it, and time to update our menus and visuals, including our website,” Revoir says. “We’re extremely happy with the change and James did a great job.”
