Big News!

Cilino’s Italian Restaurant  is officially open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, from 11AM-10PM! The Periodic Table is still home to the craft cocktail menu, full bar and bartenders, but Cilino’s authentic Italian menu and service team are in the dining room!

“I’m passionate about entrepreneurship and supporting new venture exploratory opportunities within our community. A pop-up restaurant is a great opportunity to test the Grinnell market while mitigating most of the risk that might prohibit a start up or expansion from coming to a small town. I’m hoping these six months for Cilino’s inside Hotel Grinnell will result in finding a permanent home in our community. We’re looking forward to offering their Italian fare to our guests and already established clientele.” – Angela Harrington, Owner/Operator, Hotel Grinnell

The Periodic Table Drink Menu

We stock various Iowa breweries, such as Peacetree (from Knoxville, IA), Exile (from Des Moines) and Toppling Goliath (from Decorah, IA), along with some of your favorites!

We partnered with a nearby business, Iris Coffee, to serve fair-trade certified coffee. Their specialty coffees are sourced from all over the world and enable farmers to earn fair wages, work in safe conditions, protect the environment and provide an education to their children.
