Neighborhood treasure Sevy’s Grill opened May 8, 1997. The name “Sevy” was coined after professional golf legend Seve Ballesteros. Owner Jim “Sevy” Severson says the name of the restaurant is because of his love for golf and his last name being Severson. “Wearing spikeless golf shoes in the kitchen, having complimentary logo tees and building a four-hole putting green on the side patio all tie in to this passion,” he says. Here’s his recipe for a top tart.
