When the Middletons purchased Grandpa’s Place in 2003, the family immediately got down to work modernizing the 106-year-old fixture of Glenview’s culinary scene. 

They updated the original bar area, redid the walls, added modern touches and built a small parlor inside to open up some elbow room and create a space to host live music, said Rory Middleton, who runs day-to-day operations at Grandpa’s with his brother, Kevin, on behalf of the family.
