Just months after opening Ingo's Tasty Food across from La Grande Orange Grocery, LGO Hospitality has announced plans to open another restaurant in the Arcadia neighborhood.
The new restaurant will be located at 4225 East Camelback Road, currently the home of a small complex called Camelback Court. That building -- which houses Camelback Flowers, Havana Cafe, and Carmel's Coffee -- will be demolished in order to make room for a new freestanding building for the restaurant, its patio, and parking lot.
The company hasn't yet announced a name for its newest concept but says the best way to describe the venture will be "an LGO grill." Early plans for the menu include features like an oyster bar, grass-fed steaks, seafood, and "a killer wine and craft beer selection."
There's no word yet on who will design the new building, but LGO promises it will offer "quality architecture, design, and food."
The new restaurant is just the most recent of a large number of dining destinations to put down roots in the neighborhood near Camelback and 44th Street. The Mastro family's Steak 44 is set to open near that intersection in April and restaurateur Sam Fox has plans to open a "life-changing" juice bar at 3912 East Camelback Road.
LGO's popular patio dining spot, Chelsea's Kitchen, is also located on 5040 N. 40th St., not far from the hub where LGO Pizzeria and Grocery and Ingo's Tasty Food can be found.
Stay tuned for more details as we get them.
