La Grande Orange Grocery-A Church You Can Drink in All Day Long
When I met with Bob Lynn the Founder/President of the La Grande Orange Grocery and asked him what LGO was all about, he said he wanted it to be like Church…?!
You have to watch this video to see what he means, and why it’s one of the hippest places in Scottsdale (besides his other spots I will post about soon)!
It reminded me of being in NYC when I walked in- there’s a gourmet “grocery” on one side with a GREAT wine selection, deli, pastry and coffee counter.
You place your order there and walk over to the restaurant side to relax and pick up any pizza orders.
I got “The Keeper” Willamette Valley Cab. Franc 07′ – it’s jammy, plum tomato notes was a perfect compliment to my margherita pizza.
The second vino I went with was a nice sweet refreshing riesling by the LGO brand name that hit the spot with my spicy wings.
Both were under 20 bucks .
And the best part of the vino, besides it hitting my lips, was once I bought it on the grocery side & brought it over to the sit down area there was NO corkage fee- doesn’t get better than that!
