Cascone’s Grill North softly opened earlier this month in the Northland.

The Cascone family has owned and operated a River Market restaurant since the mid-1950s. Brothers Frank and George took over after their father, Sam Cascone, passed away in 1992.

But new restaurants coming into the River Market area were cutting into their sales, so the brothers decided to open a second cafe.

Frank Cascone is the owner and operator of the new restaurant in the Picture Hills Shopping Center at 6427 N. Cosby Ave. Marty’s Bar-B-Q had previously operated in the space.

George Cascone will remain at the River Market location at 15-17 E. Fifth St.

Described as “Italian cuisine meets American diner,” Cascone’s Grill North offers items like biscuits and gravy, omelets, banana nut french toast, breakfast sandwiches, entree salads, and pasta, as well as daily specials including fried fish, corned beef and cabbage, and more.

There’s also “The Big Sam” sandwich — Italian sausage, egg, cheese and hash browns on Italian toast — named after Sam Cascone.

Hours are currently 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. It is closed Monday.
