Grate & Barrel is a grilled cheese restaurant founded on the premise of good, inexpensive food served in a cozy environment. Originally started in 2015, the restaurant relocated to Bridgeland two years later.

Grounded in its community, Grate & Barrel tries to source ingredients as locally as possible for its sandwiches (especially local bread and cheese). The ketchup served with every sandwich is made in-house with "unsellable" produce, like misshapen or overripe tomatoes, salvaged from grocery stores. Founder Mhairi O'Donnell comes from a family of restauranteurs, so she's got a penchant for supporting fellow family-run businesses as well.
